Day 3 of the 30 day Painting Challenge "Misty"

"Misty"  7 by 9 inches on watercolor paper ©Maria's Watercolor Art

Day 3 of the 30 day painting Challenge, theme being "Moving On" or action paintings.   Must thank a friend for letting me use her reference photo from her Instagram feed.  She took the picture of this little guy on her summer travels to Assateague Island.  Have you read the book, 'Misty of Chincoteague' by Marguerite Henry?  One of my favorites as a little girl, I would love to go visit that island and see the wild ponies, but painting one is the next best thing :)

Here is a link to the book on Amazon, in case you have a young, horse loving reader:  Misty

This painting can be purchased here for $75.00 plus $7.50 for shipping.


  1. This brings back all those great Marguerite Henry book memories--Beautifully done! Your love of animals really shows. Great theme too! Happy Challenge Painting and Cheers from Colorado! Aimee

  2. Lovely! We were at Chincoteague a few weeks ago. You should go!
