Sure looks like they had a large lush pasture to live out their days!! What great memories you will have!
Nicely done and you've really portrayed their age well! What size is this?
Chisaii, thank you for your words!
I saw the gorilla and he has his look full of kind tenderness.Hi is alive!
Pencils are very dificcult to work ! require big patient, you have wonderfull works.
I ,m a veterinarian but not working at the moment and I use my time studing arts. Congratulation for you , because painting endangerous spicies help ordinary people get aware ! all have the same rights in our planet.
This horses are on 60cmx40cm (100x150inches)

Anly--I really like your work. It is genuine and very well done. I love horses but have never had to suffer losing one--how terrible to lose three of them.
Where do you live, if I may ask? You seem to have some large and interesting trees around your pasture. I also commend you on your non-native English. I would really be in trouble if I had to type in any other language.:D You "speak" the language of art very well too.
Hi Anly, I agree with Lisa M, they do look old and I think you captured their character. Keep it going.

I like it! It's very nicely done...and love the older horses as the subjects...very sweet. They don't tend to get much glory in their ripe age.

I love your use of colour.
Dear new friends
Thank you for all of you! for your funny and kindness words!
You have reason , those trees at the end are eucalyptus because i live in Argentina, buenos Aires.
Is sad to loose three girls but i keep other three youngers!
Please be patient with my english...I try to do my best :- )

Your English is just fine, and your painting is great! I'm saddened by your loss, but hopefully, like others said, this painting will be a great memory for you. You did a really great job with it. Hope to see more of your work too!

That is very kind of you, Anly! Thanks!
I've heard that Argentina is a beautiful country. My father-in-law is from Bolivia so he has lots of stories to tell.

Oh this is a beautiful painting! I just love it!
What a beautiful trio. It looks like you provided them with a peaceful, rich life in their old age. Your painting is very well done, a lovely tribute to them.

This is a very beautiful painting! I actually thought that this was a photography when I first saw your post. Your English is better than a lot of native speakers that I know.

A beautiful memorial, and shows the loving care they had. I love your "english" it's fun and gets across all the meaning, don't be shy about posting more.
thank all of you for your words!
