Her name is Jennifer MacNeill at Gypsy Mare studios http://gypsymare.blogspot.com/ not only is she an artist, she also paints pony for the "Trail of Painted Ponies" collection which I would love to start collecting. That is, if I ever move to bigger place!
Of course, you will totally understand why I chose the painted pony called "Native Son" to show you.......
I love the detail, even down to the muzzle mottling and striped hooves!Now I know that the holidays are over, but I had to add this one because I thought it was so festive and reminded me a bit of My Boy's spotted equine friend, Cactus Jack Splash.
Jennifer's site featuring the trail of painted ponies is amazing- http://jensponies.blogspot.com/. I think you surely find one that speaks to you. Do any of you have any of the ponies from the Trail collection?
