Tending the Palomino

Tending the Palomino
Oil on panel, 16x12
Civil War Paint-Out
When I was still in grade school, I used to write stories about horses. On the playground, my friends and I would pretend to be horses - running in the wind as fast as we could.  I have always loved horses, so it was really a treat to have them included in our civil war reenactment.  This beautiful palomino was just as lovely as one I once wrote about (I named her Goldenrod).  The young woman holding her lead rope, Jamie, was just as nice as could be - and makes such a wonderful model for this vintage painting.  Painting number 229 in as many days.
