'Sir Barrington' sold
61/2" x 8" watercolor
I absolutely fell in love with this big beautiful horse. He is so powerful, and just gorgeous! He is a beautiful example of a Gypsy horse stallion owned by Sue Niesen of Gypsy Lane Horses.
I'm working on incorporating more emotive (?? for lack of a better word) backgrounds in my paintings that really complement the subject. I don't want to get into super detailed backgrounds at this point (or. . . ever if I'm being honest) but I want the background to contribute to the feeling I want to convey with each painting. At least, that's how I hope it's coming across!
In other news, I am at home with a sick boy today. There is much juice drinking and Lego building going on here. Only been in school a week and already he's sick! It's nothing serious, just a cold that then lead to an ear infection which always makes me paranoid since my son has unilateral hearing (he only has hearing in one of his ears, he was born with it).
So every time he gets sick I usually run him to the doctor, just to make sure all is well with his ears. And wouldn't you know it, when I took him in today the doctor said he had an ear infection! Just as I suspected. Mothers know all I tell ya. :)
While waiting for his prescription to be filled at the pharmacy we stopped at a local bakery and got these cute owl cookies. Because everyone knows when you're a kid and you're sick your mother should spoil you. Right? Right. ;)
Have a great week everyone! Huzzah!
