Title or Location: Equestria
The painting was a gift for my SIL who has always owned, ridden and tended horses. Following a nasty accident and the death of her last beloved horse, she decided to retire from her lifelong hobby. I had the frame already and as I took out the backing, decided to paint straight onto the hardboard as it was such a great colour!

This is a painting from a photograph of a good friend who was a great support in a very difficult period of my life. Although we now live in different continents she has supported my art journey for the last 15months and I wanted to bless her by painting her. She was thrilled with the painting and was happy to see a resemblance although I somehow managed to make her look around 12! This is my 7th attempt at a portrait, in acrylic on watercolour paper, A4 size. It took me 5 hours to paint & I
