How long has it been? This painting of my horse, Cayenne, has been in my studio just waiting for the final touches for the past few months. I think today I can say it is completed. The composition being long and thin is rather fun and and gives a contemporary feel to this piece. Cayenne was born and raised on our farm in Missouri. I remember sleeping on hay bales to watch over her the first night after her arrival. It was an exciting time and I think for the first two months of Cay's life I watched her none stop. I would go to the pasture with the horses and just watch Cay run and play and then watch her napping in the paddock while her mother, Angel, grazed leaving her aunt Mystery to watch over her. Having Cayenne in my life made for "A Painting Day".
