Just horsing around

I thought I would show you the process of painting a horse mural. Not that I am a professional by any means. I love painting or drawing murals. I don’t usually paint or draw on a small-scale such as drawing paper but give me a wall and I am happy. I can always paint over if it doesn’t look good.

I started by painting a window or I should say a window frame. The rest of the window will be painted last. I used a photograph of an actual horse that I took then traced it using a Wacom Tablet. And no my perspective is not perfect, I always have trouble with that. And yes I should take time to study it but I haven’t yet. Next I printed the photograph the size that I wanted the horse to be and used carbon paper to trace it onto the wall.  It is supposed to look as if the horse is sticking its head through the window into the house.

Ripple of Autumn

I shot this today while sitting out in the beautiful weather on a great bench under my cute little tree that I planted a few years ago. I love my trees.

Got It!

Animal Hero!

My good neighbor saw the kitty with the cup on it’s head in the parking lot across the street. The little one that we tried to save at the beginning of the week and we were unsuccessful.  He noticed the kitten was getting weaker and thought we would have a better chance to help it so we gave it another try and Voila!  He caught it and got the cup off! Yahoo! An animal hero!  The kitty is in my kitty carrier cage with food and water sitting in the shade until I can take it to0 either the vet or our no-kill shelter in the morning.

It is an amazingly beautiful day today!

Such a beautiful sight

May I Offer You Some Water?

Be kind, please provide water for the wildlife and stray animals who need it.  A bird bath, a pretty bowl, dog bowl, anything to offer relief during this journey through life. It’s a good deed that doesn’t take much effort but means the world to those who will refresh themselves with it.
