Study for Golden


After posting the painting, "White Cloud" I received information for a show with the theme, "Golden".  I perked right up and thought the "White Cloud" painting would be perfect for the show.  Then I read the show prospectus stating the painting size limit is 4x6-inches.  OHHHHHHH!  Since the show deadline is just in a few days I went to work on this little tiny painting and am naming it "Golden".  The big brushes got swept to the side and the little brushes moved in for, "A Painting Day".

This is another gorgeous painting! I don't know how you manage to paint so small and put so much detail in. I absolutely love the lighting, colors, and the magical way you painted the mane. As usual, the eye is stunning, too! Sorry to sound like a broken record and gush so much, but I just love your mustang paintings!!

Both of these paintings are gorgeous. I may like the colors in the tiny 4x6 even more than the larger... if that's possible!
I also love the dimensions of your larger painting. I used 24x12 in a vertical format and really liked the way it refreshed and rejuvenated my composition sense.
Good luck with the show. I think you're a shoo-in.
