Painting of Buckskin horse with flowers.

This was an experiment to create painting using a muted palette. It was fun . I might have the dark colors to dark, but the legs on the horse are black so maybe it reads right. She's on a sagebrush pasture in Montana, near Dupuyer. I might add a little touch of light to the high spot over her eye as I think it should be showing some bright color too. I'm not sure about that yet. The flowers were really fun to do. Little doinks of paint here and there.

This is the size of an ACEO card, but it's got more detail than most of the cards. It's more like a miniature painting.
