So much fun to paint! Well, repaint in this case- I couldn't believe she hadn't sold already, but in Louisville several people asked me where her Cutie Mark was.
So I came home, and looked up Cutie Mark (seriously?), and discovered it hiding on her other butt cheek! Excuse me.... her other flank. So I helpfully added it in while playing around with the rest of the painting, especially the highlights and mane and tail.... it seems to be a lute or harp or something. I'm guessing that means that this particular pony is musically inclined :)
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
