"Inspiration From You" Painting : "Getting Ready To Ride"

8"x 8"
acrylic on masonite

At the end of October I asked for "Inspiration From You" and received several wonderful photos and quotes. My hope was to pick a photo or quote and paint or draw one a month and give the gift of a print or note cards of the artwork to the person who provided the inspiration. Obviously, I didn't meet the one-a-month goal.....yet(!)....but now that the busyness of the holidays is over, I should be able to stay on track!
This is a photo from a couple who have 78 beautiful acres in Elk, Washington. Jo & Steve have 12 horses and 5 Labradors. Their animals are their children and they treat them with the utmost love, care and respect. In this painting, Steve is adjusting the stirrups for Thomas to take a ride on Buck.
Please continue to send in photos or other ideas and any kind of story to go along with it. The story gives the painting more meaning!
