Today two veterinarians were here to do a small surgical procedure on my mare.  My studio is in the barn so while the vets worked I stayed out of the way and decided to bring out yet another tiny 3x3-inch canvas and paint.  I am  not a nurse and am kind squeamish about medical matters so painting was a good idea.   I chose to paint a lovely mare named, Seville.   Hiding out in my studio made for, "A Painting Day".

"Seville", 3x3-inches, oil/canvas by Ruth Andre

Another beauty, Ruth! I love the movement and the way you have handled the white highlight. Just lovely!

She is a beauty and so is the painting.
