Course, you guys know I paint a lot of these! But this is the first major piece I have done since my sister passed away in the Spring. It is totally in my comfort zone, which I thought would help me to get out of my slump.
It is done on velour board, assorted soft pastels, about 14 x 19.

This is so nice, Kate. Those eyes are just so soft and tender looking. I'm glad you are over your slump and wish you happier days ahead.

WOW, what a beautiful horse Kate. Is he yours? Good to see you painting again.

In fact must get myself organised to take a pic of my latest painting when I get it finished, it will be the first I've posted in a long while. Many of my others are copies of other artists in order to practice.

Take Care and keep painting.
Love Carolynn :) :heart: :heart:

Thanks Tres. It was really hard. I figured that painting would get me through the hard time. But it was the opposite! I just couldn't settle to anything.
It is getting better and I have another piece in the planning stages.

Thanks to you too, Maureen!

Fantastic painting Kate!!! It's great to see you painting again.

this is so soft and gentle... the horse looks sad... did painting this help with your grief? I recently lost a friend too and never stopped painting through the pain... it helped a lot. I hope you are feeling better and that this painting helped with the healing process... much hugs to you.
