I've had the reference picture for this painting forever. I think it might have been taken in Colorado but it's been so long ago I can't remember. It was a very peaceful scene with the morning fog dissipating and the horses grazing.

I went to scan this and it looked horrible so I took it outside and set it on a bench and took a picture of it - scanning is so much easier and I get the high resolution I need for making prints but there are times the scanner and pastels just don't get along and the color isn't anywhere near the original - so that is when I use my camera. I used my little camera for this photo of the piece but I will need to get my big camera out and take a proper picture of it so I'll have the high resolution needed for prints - for now this works though.
Genesis 1:5
God called the light day, and the darkness He called night And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
