How Can You Not Smile?
I've been looking forward to today's painting since I decided to do this project. I knew which photo I wanted to do of Gracie. I even posted the photo here. So here we have Twine's daughter Grace, a Thoroughbred weanling from the last, very small crop of Cats At Home.
I was laughing for much of the time I was working on this painting. The bottom line is, I adore little Gracie. She has oozed personality from day one, and I have to admit, she's been indulged! The other foal born this year, Billy, was very shy and took a while to come out of his shell, but Gracie came out ready to take on the world. Seriously, who could resist that face?
This is another 10 x 8 oil on panel - gessoed masonite again, limited palette. It also marks the one-third mark of my little challenge. Twenty days to go!
