New - Arabian Painting

The kiddo has decided to finally take a nap today so I could finish (maybe?) a 12" x 12" oil painting of a black Arabian horse. I like the bright turquoise background.
I was working from a photo I took in York, PA at and Arabian show a few years ago. I guess this guy appeals to that kid in me that will always be in love with The Black Stallion. Probably one of the best horse movies ever made.
Here are some pictures...

I love your paintings! Arabians are my horse of choice. That's all I ever owned. One year we went to Scottsdale to the Nationals. I have never seen any creature as beautiful as these were. The Black Stallion was my favorite movie too.

Thanks for posting as you go along .It helps me and I'm sure others see how you get to the fianl picture. He is beautiful. I always wanted the Black Stallion but ended up with my white arab stallion instead! Close enough, at least he was black when born!

It turned out very lovely! I also love your photographs on the previous post. They are gorgeous!

You get so much accomplished while your little one is asleep--you should compile them all in a book and give them to her one day--While You Were Napping could be the title. LOL.

This is beautiful, Jen. I too, will always be in love with The Black Stallion... :-)
