Last summer my plein air group painted at the recreation center on Fort Carson.  We were so lucky that at the same time, the cavalry was practicing.

I like this one Pam. I'm not a horse person as a rule, but I do appreciate the art of getting the muscles to look like muscles etc. You are really good at making the horse look realistic.

Loved, LOVED, hearing you on Art Blog Radio. Really nice to hearing your voice after all this time seeing your work and commenting on your blog. I felt like I had met you in person.

Thank you Hilda. The shirt was the most fun part for me. Maybe because it was so easy to exaggerate the highlights.

Nancy, Thank you so much. I know exactly what you mean about hearing someone's voice! It does feel like you've finally met them! Thanks always for all of your great comments.

Merci beaucoup Martine!

Thank you Sherry!!

I didn't know we still had a cavalry. Really warm inviting colors in this one. Big Congrats for being on AHA show, how fun.

Nice feeling of sunlight in this one Pam!

Very nice painting. I really like how you cropped itand didn't feel the need to put more of the horse in. You have just what you need here.

Thank you Amy. I didn't know that we had a cavalry, either. They march in parades, participate in pageants, travel the country and perform in Civil War regalia. Pretty amazing.

Erik. Thank you. the sun does help w. the light and shadow!

Thanks so much Douglas. I was searching my files for more photos of cowboys, so the horse really was secondary.

Thank you Dori!
