The Little Prince

The Little Prince Clydesdale mare and foal work in progress
So things have gotten a little busy with the holidays and all, finding it harder to sit down and paint when so much else needs to be done.  My goal is to have three paintings from photos of the wild horses in Corolla, but I somehow was side tracked by these not so wild horses in Sea-world Amusement Park.

I am always put off by big projects so I picked something just for fun, and as another blogger friend put it yesterday, best to get "butt in chair" and paint something!
Here is the link to Crystals great motivational tip:  http://crystalcookart.blogspot.com/  Thanks Crystal!

Now I have just begun the sketch of the next wild horse painting, have chosen Arches Art board again, tried the Ampersand Aqua-board and it was not much of a success, but that is a story for another day!


  1. This is going to be great, Maria! Hope you find time to paint amid everything!

  2. I think you've made a great start! Can't wait to see the finished painting.

  3. Thanks Linda and Lee for your encouragement, I am hoping for a quiet afternoon tomorrow to paint, will post any progress!

  4. The Clydesdale mare and foal are going to be beautiful; can't wait to see the finished painting :)

  5. Thank you Theresa, I am really looking forward to a few hours to paint tomorrow, then I must get back to the Christmas list!
