I recently had the pleasure of painting a lovely chestnut mare for Charissa in Cochrane, Alberta. The portrait of sweet Visa, a Quarter Horse, was intended as a birthday gift for her mother, who unfortunately lost the mare last year.
It was decided that it would be extra special for Visa to be wearing her custom cowhide halter with her name embroidered onto the front in the portrait. From her gorgeous chestnut coat to her warm sparking eyes, this pretty girl was a pleasure to paint.
A special piece to be treasured and a great tribute to a wonderful mare that is no doubt missed.
