Even better than a velvet painting ;-)

Here's Elvis, still lost in thought

Here's Elvis, still lost in thought

The boyfriend (also my artistic adventures partner) says Elvis looks like a horse with a history, and some stories to tell. That’s a pretty anthropomorphic observation from a guy who knows next to nothing about horses. I don’t know what stories the actual Elvis has to tell, but he certainly looks like he might have a few. He might have even more after I get the background going, but I think I’m done for today. Plenty of time to play with the background tomorrow. Good thing I’m not doing one of those “painting-a-day” projects that are so interesting and so popular among artists online nowadays. I’d never get one finished in one day!

    Hi Alli. I’m so proud of you for pursuing your dream and making it a reality. Elvis has a wonderfully mischievous smile. Would love to know what he’s thinking!

    Thanks for your support! As for Elvis, he’s thinking about that cute mare over in the next paddock! Can’t you just see him saying, “h-e-e-y baby “, or maybe “H-a-a-y baby” to give her a little extra enticement.
