This was the first painting I started after the long travel layoff. I wanted to keep it simple, so I chose this beautiful paint horse standing with his back to the morning sun. In my reference he was standing with a hill behind him, which wasn’t very interesting, so I “moved” him to a background that let me do a landscape, too. The setting is the Hangai Mountains of central Mongolia, a lush and scenic part of the country that isn’t anything like the vision most people have of the Land of Blue Skies.

Simply lovely! You make me want to visit Mongolia. Thanks for sharing your travels with us Susan. 🙂
In case you’re interested, here’s my take on a spotted horse. 😉 http://www.flyingponystudios.com/percy_art_sample.html
My ancestors, it seems, used to ride horses like this across the plains. Aren’t they just so pretty? Lovely.
‘Nuff said. =)
