While browsing on K T Spark's The Wildwood blog a few weeks ago, I saw a piece of artwork titled Work Boots that caught my eye!
The piece was by Carolyn Mock. I particularly liked it because it reminded me a little bit of a photo Paint Girl took of me on My Boy last summer. I have always wanted to have someone create a piece of art for me off of that photo.
I clicked on Carolyn's painting on the sidebar and it led me to her website. I emailed K T and asked her if I could feature some of Carolyn's art on my blog, and she said yes. Yeah! I really liked this one called Appaloosa Sundown:
I also liked this one, titled Hello Handsome. You probably did not know this about me, but I am a fan of moose. Goodness, I don't know why and I have never seen one in person. I just find them fascinating!
Here is the link to Carolyn's site, if you want to see her other western and wildlife artwork.
As I was writing this post, it dawned on me that my best friend (of 27 years) and I took an acrylic painting class a few years ago. I was always a good artist as a child and think I am fairly creative artistically. I painted a few canvases, but then I got back into horses and gave it up. However, my friend has continued painting and has shown some real talent. Perhaps I have found the person to paint that photo for me!
I also want to thank my blogging friends Victoria at Teachings of the Horse and Lisa over at Laughing Orca Ranch for the Butterfly Award! I am always so honored to receive an award! And this one is such a lovely one, too! Thank you!
