A Wee Post

Just a small update: I am not ashamed to admit that I am addicted to an online horse role-playing game called Equine-Ranch. Incorporating true-to-life scenarios and genetics, one is able to breed and show horses of any of breed, while steering clear of such obstacles as an unnamed genetic disorder, diseases such as Equine Infectious Anemia, and high inbreeding coefficients. Far more advanced than any other horse SIM, I highly recommend this game to anyone who has ever been interested in genetics and/or dreamed of having their own horse breeding outfit. 

That being said, I created this picture for a fellow E-R player in exchange for a custom horse in the game. It's pen and watercolor on w/c paper, with chalk pastel highlights:

Thanks! :D It's for SweetAdeline, if she ever acknowledges that she's received it, lol. Good practice, at any rate.

I keep checking back to your blog to see if you've updated...tsk tsk! :P All the stuff I've seen on your eBay store looks wonderful, though! I'd love to see them archived somewhere, because they go so fast!!

Ahhh, I love this picture for so many reasons. The colors are certainly indicative of a cold day, but they are bright and happy at the same time. I also adore the careful little details, like the lumps of snow that slowly accumulated on the fence posts and the small streak of yellow to indicate light streaming out of the door. And of course, the horses are lovely.

Update more please!

Oh, and this is Miriam in case you were wondering.
