Started and finished this one yesterday while at Reins of Life, but since I like to photograph these in daylight I had to wait till today to post it. This is Revelation, “Reva”, the cute little filly I posted about a few weeks back.

For the first time ever I experimented with painting while tending my booth. I have always done the ink drawings but thought painting would be too messy and space-consuming. I discovered, however, that I can take my tiny (about the size of a cigarette pack) Winsor & Newton watercolor field box along with a couple of small water containers and they work perfectly on this little table I acquired a long time ago but never used. Since the Aquabord™ is only 5″ x 7″, everything fit perfectly. The best part is that people seem amazed that they can watch how a painting develops. I had several instances where the same people came back later to see how it was going!
