lilkitty's mom

here is lilkitty's mom. I think I got the likeness pretty well. I am satisfied with that.
But, my husband, ,upon seeing the painting and not having seen the original photo, felt that the horse head appeared to be without a body, ala "The Godfather" , and that it felt wierd to him. The colt is being viewed nearly head on, but do you think it lookes disembodied , and should I, perhaps, show the rump? I wanted to keep the focus on the two faces.

My then little boys with our welsh pony - first gymkhana for the youngest in a lead line class where they had to get off and do something and then get back on. They were well behind but the dear little chap stood there so happily patient while his rider got hauled on board even though the rest of the 'field' was cantering off ahead
Great artwork Tiny

Thank you for sharing photos. I will look carefully at them. I really have to have a lot of clarity and detail of the face for me to do any kind of portrait. So, these might not be the best for that purpose, though they are very cute.

my mom loved it and didnt even notice the missing rump from the horse. If your not going into nitty gritty the hillside behind the horse can be interrpreted as the rump of the horse and it doesnt seem disembodied. My whole family when I showed them the product without showing the reference photo, knew exactly who it was, so the exactness is superb!

Well, that's good to hear. ONe always risks offending someone when you make a portrait of them.

Your friend has a beautiful smile. I'll consider it. I have to back and catch up on some of the ones I sketched out way back. But won't be able to paint for a week (on a trip.)

Thanks for subbing.

Mmmm here's a couple of me and Henny. I don't have many of us together, cause I'm usually the one behind the camera ;) Okay, more than a couple. I figure you'd like a variety if you wanted to draw one of them. Beautiful work, the most I can do is draw a stick figure LOL

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
