reins for recovery

12x12 oil on gallery wrap canvas
NFS
i ran into an old friend the other day whose son is big into horses.  he's volunteering for an organization called http://www.reinstorecovery.org/ .  they are holding a fund raiser this weekend and i offered to do a painting for them.  this will be tweaked a tiny bit ..i need to pull some of the green in the sky down into the rest of the painting for color unity and the mane in the sunlight needs to be more colorful but this is a pretty good idea of what it will be llike when its finished.

Chinaman's Bluff

16x20 oil on stretched canvas
i just posted this on the richard robinson challenge page.  this is the second month of this on-line workshop and last month i had so much stuff going on i didn't have a chance to enter til very late...hopefully i can get some feedback from some of the painters world-wide who are a part of this.  it's so cool...i was emailing back and forth with richard..in freakin' new zealand!!!!!....isn't this technology something???...i may tweak it a bit...usually once i get a photo of what i'm working on, i see what needs to be done...we'll see what the others have to say!
