A study for a larger painting. This is 6x6 on wood, a horse pasture in a West Marin area known as San Geronimo. Note to self: need to figure out horse anatomy. Lots of leg joints I don't quite understand. Memories of going to summer camp and riding a horse for the first time. Not having much exposure to animals at the time I was expecting it to be soft, like...our plush toys? Well, that horse's back was HARD. First time I really thought about the disadvantages of external genitalia. Yeoow! Then the horse ran under some low hanging tree branches. I'll paint horses and let someone else ride them.
