Yankee Dapple Dandy

I’ve done it! I’ve finished the painting I will enter in the Washington International Horse Show poster contest. I’m kind of excited about it.

Thanks to everyone who voted for the two photos when I couldn’t decide. I have to admit that even though Photo #2 received 73% of the vote (it is lovely) I decided to paint the first one instead. As a rider myself, I liked the perspective, and also thought the composition would lend itself well to a poster.

I am sending in the entry today (with 20 days to spare, whoopee!) and the winner will be announced by August 15. Keep your fingers crossed.
In the meantime, I was so happy to paint a horse again. I miss riding so much and this is the next best thing, for now. So – I’m offering 20% off horse portraits ordered between now and July 15, any size.
 
Ride on.
P.S. The original of this painting is for sale!
