H = Horse

I'll be gone all day tomorrow so this is tomorrow's 75/75 plus my submission for the Facebook Alphabet Mini project. This one is titled, 'H = Horse'.

Last July I was artist-in-residence at The Tin Shop in downtown Breckenridge, Colorado.  The Tin Shop program is sponsored by the Breck Arts District.  I had a wonderful month there - and will be there again this coming July.  The model for H = Horse is one of a pair of draught horses that pull a carriage through the streets of Breckenridge.  Their regular route takes them right past the Tin Shop several times a day.  I must look like someone that the horse knew because he watched for me at the Tin Shop door.  As he passed by, he'd turn his head to look at me until the carriage turned a corner. Maybe I look like someone who fed him apples.

I like this little study and will use the idea for a larger gallery painting.
