This is a giclée print of an original graphite pencil I did of my horse Billy Bob. A couple of years ago I took this reference picture of him when I had just finished giving him a bath and he was feeling his oats. He often reminds me of a wild mustang in attitude and from time to time even in his looks. He is a bay Appaloosa but each year he has more and more white hair - he is 20 now. He definitely has that old west free spirit about him.

This is a beautiful piece and looks great framed with a nice simple white matte and black frame.

Thanks Lesta - I'm glad you like it. I'm a little partial to it myself for obvious reasons ;-).

Yes - I'd be happy to be added to your blog links. I will do the same.

Karen- Brilliant how you have the mane extending outside the rectangle of the main drawing, which, of couse, is gorgeous.

Thanks Susan. I have done a couple of drawings that "go out of the box" like that and really like how they look. I'm glad you like it too.
