I did this painting as a commission last year. This was a fun piece because I completely let this one develop with no preconcieved ideas... other than knowing it was to have a horse theme. I painted an underpainting and then stepped back to look for the horse. Not only did one horse 'pop' but several did. I then painted around them. I called this Painted ponies because one of the horses began to look like an Indian's painted pony. rahter than sign it with my name I signed it with a hand print.
