Saddle Up

 Good Morning Kiss
 Ellie Mae
Saddle Up

Yesterday Kenley and Hunter (Son and Granddaughter) came to check on their horses, and ride for a little while. I love horses, western art, hats, boots, etc.  Anything western! So watching them made me think of the painting I had done  "Saddle Up" in 2009, plus I did Ellie Mae for Hunter. She hasn't seen it, but she will get it for her birthday in August. She will be 10.  I just had to add the photo of Hunter kissing Ellie. She was so glad to see her.
I used gouache in the background, and on the mane on the Saddle Up painting, and a little here an there on the saddle horn. The rest is transparent watercolor.

I like the saddle paintings! I also love horses and used to draw them exclusively as a child,...anything horsey.
