WDE April 5-Dream Gift

Thanks for the great refs, Maureen!!

Had another bout with the back and COPD combo. I must have quit the meds too soon...but I'm back on 'em now and feeling a whole lot better.

This pony made me think of the millions of kids who have wished for a pony for Christmas.

This is oil on a 5x7 canvas panel.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

Done at a little over two hrs.

Re: WDE April 5-Dream Gift

Just been looking at him on your Blog!
He's such a shy little thing and you've made him very desirable!
Thank you for making a gorgeous painting from an indifferent ref.!
Stick to the meds until you're sure you're well again!

Lovely. A pony-loving child would love to have that framed in her/his bedroom, I'm sure.

Re: WDE April 5-Dream Gift

Deano, when I saw the pony ref, I hoped that you would be feeling well enough to paint him! This is such a beautiful painting; I would love to brush his mane.
I hope that you continue your recovery.

Re: WDE April 5-Dream Gift

If a child's dream could be put onto a canvas, this is it. Just awesome.

Hope you're feeling better!!!

Love your transition in your background! Nice work on the pony too! Very nice palette color choices throughout!
