Racecar Sounds!

I know all foals race around, but Thoroughbred babies seem to do so with a particular intensity that reminds me it's what they're born to do. Jubie's little girl is as precocious as they come. I could watch her for hours.

This painting is 11 x 14 oil on board. I admit I plan to polish this one a bit more. I was pretty happy how I managed to get the drawing down with reasonable accuracy - those legs are always a challenge! I love the loose, sketchy look, but it needs to be taken just a little bit further. Maybe then this filly will make the trip to Saratoga - the one painted on board, at least! The one out in the barn has to wait a few years before we know if she's going to have what it takes!
