i did this a few years ago, it is of my Arab gelding, call name "Bub". i had him for 25 years until i lost him to complications from a thyroid imbalance at age 27.

Oh he is so beautiful. I am sorry for your loss!! I am glad you got to have him for a long time though.

Outstanding memorial to your gorgeous Arab! Lovely use of color and that expression is spot on!:clap:
I know you must miss him, but how wonderful to have been able to share your life with this treasured, beautiful creature, for so many years.
I love Arabs, they have expression(in my opinion), as well as intelligence which is rivaled by no other breed(again, my personal opinion). I love their alertness and keen sense of us humans. I still miss mine .

thanks all for the kind comments. Bub and i had a very close relationship, it about 5 years before i could do this portrait. as long as i had him i could feel ok riding other horses but once he was gone i lost my lifetime urge to ride. he had a pretty good show career in 'open' shows back in the 70's and early 80's against the 'big' horses. we specialized in the trail class. but mostly he was my bud!
