When I painted my first pony with my beloved crow on his back, I knew my muse was next to me. The idea came in a flash, even the style and subject.
The next two are continuations of the pony family and my muse is still with me. All are on 40 x 40 canvas with prepared surfaces of modeling paste to give great texture. I still have pony ideas, even sketches, to work with and may continue now or do something entirely different to give myself a different challenge, then back to the ponies until my muse moves on. I never know when that will be.
So here are ponies one, two and three and ideas for more prancing in my head, some swimming, some jumping, some at night under moonlight.
I’d love to hear what you think.
