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

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.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

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.
