Need your Help! Opinions!

Ok, so there's a local art show going on in our town and i've been asked to display some of my pieces. Problem is, I don't have many of my own that I feel the average person would be interested in, as I do mostly commissioned pieces.
SO! I was thinking of painting up a few for the show. My question is, what sort of stuff would you guys personally like to buy? (horse scenes, dogs, head shots, backgrounds, etc). Keeping in mind they will be on 12X12'' sheets of canvas paper.

Or, if you have an super nice pictures that you would be willing to donate for a painting that would be great to! Keeping in mind that people who aren't necessarily horse people will be looking
Here's the only one I have picked out so far, and I can enter 4.

Feel free to upload any pictures of photos or paintings as references for ideas of what you personally like to see!

Horse scene silhouette types with nice backgrounds/Sunsets are nice! I know I won't buy photos of other dogs or horses usually since they don't look like mine. But silhouette types don't show markings :P

I know people like stylized stuff, like Southwest art style? Or pictures of a group of horses running across the desert?
BTW, I have the same dilemna. I have a lot of artwork in my portfolio, but other than the owner, it may not be of much interest to others.

I think a safe bet would be painting Arabians, Andalusians, Friesians, and Mustangs since those are the typical "dream horses" that any girl would love a painting of, whether or not they own a horse. :) Ocean backgrounds, grassy pastures, or even a fantasy setting for a unicorn might be good.

You have a lot of talent. I love that painting. I have personally always loved work done by Tim Cox They always tell some sort of story.





I have a few images that I can throw out there for reference...if you desire. Though I don't know if this is what you are looking for. If you use any and they don't sell, I might buy. =)

Personally I am in love with fluid watercolor and drawing ink type paintings.

Ben tour's work ^
I love the illustrative yet loose style of working (if that makes sense)

Thanks guys! I figured arabs, or a nice background would be a safe idea. I've just started using watercolor, so maybe i'll try a couple of those!

I know those ideas are a bit cliche, but I was thinking of the kind of paintings that a horse-crazy girl would want. At least I would have totally loved a painting of a spirited Arabian, or a unicorn when I was a teenager. :)

Or for a more unique kind of horse painting, you could try something like this:

People who always paint horses like that need to walk behind one from time to time and watch the most romantic way their rectum extends with a turd and it plops , steaming, to the ground. Waiter! Reality check, please.
