Michelle, Maureen, Colin & Wassie,

Thank you all for your kind words. This picture was a commissioned piece and even though I am not usually bothered when it comes to handing over the finished work to the client in this case I felt a little pang of sorrow :crying::crying::crying:.

Thank you all.

Chammi,

Its funny how you get attached to certain works. I feel there is a little something missing when I head out to the studio now. Horses aren't usually my thing to paint but I am glad that the client is very happy with it and Shergar has found a good home.

Thank you for your kind words.

Joe, Thanks for your kind words. I'd love to live near a racecourse lots of opportunities to paint race horses.
