Who wouldn't love a horse named "mudpie".
I have a cat named Elvis, but I call him "lumpy".

Heres a picture (more of Jess in my horses) that if you feel like messing with it go ahead :) If not that's cool. If you do do her I would love it if her ears were forward lol

You are amazingly talented, keep it going

Dear friend,
I hate to sound arrogant, but I tend to do photos that inspire me in some way. Either the color or lighting or the action of the horse. I mean no insult, but that photo is very plain. It will not make a very interesting painting. Your mare is not doubt prettier than shown in the picture, to be honest. If you have a really neat photo, post it. I cannot guarantee being able to do it. I can guarantee that if you commission me to do so, but for freebies for fun, well it's when I have time and when photo "speaks" to me.

I am kind of Ho hum about that one. I think the colors got muddy. But I did it while cleaning up to go to bed , past midnight. So, whatever.

I liked the position of their legs and the way they bore the whole front on the one leg, well under the body.

The blue is meant to show the shiny black hair. But maybe too much blue. I spent so much time looking at the tiny details and color that I lost connection with the overall.
