Here is a "portrait" I finished for Ms. Eve, owner and mommy of Cinder. I used the photograph as inspiration. Usually, I don't work from photographs much because if I don't get a likeness, it feels like a failure, and if I spend too much energy trying to stay close to the image, I lose the vitality that comes with just expressing the energy of the horse, regardless of whethere it looks like any certain horse or not.
I have some other new works that I will add to my artwork thread in just a sec.

I have had some trouble uploading photos onto this forum, and some success. Hope it works this time!
