July 12 work in progress

The painting does not have that weird highlight area on top, don't put too much faith in these night pics... It's coming along. I think if I can finish the painting tomorrow and do all the ink work on Saturday then all is well. Still need to paint the neck and do all the shadowing/striping of all the white areas, and then of course all the ink work (my favorite part, yay!) I can make final adjustments on Sunday and photograph it and get it in on Monday. Hmm, what else to enter!

Oh, everyone keeps asking, this is what I'm talking about: Fair Oaks Chicken Festival Sadly the website does not mention the art show (hmpf!)

Tomorrow is the first road ride with Shylah. Who's more nervous, me or her? (Me!!) I took her for a walk this evening. Went down another nearby road and saw lots of horses in fields next to the road (um, I think Shylah is in heat!), barking dogs, more cars, scary drain pipes going under driveways, etc. She was decent, but again I was glad to be on the ground. A lady stopped and asked me if Shylah is part Friesian. Tee hee! (no, purebred Canadian Horse). It's rare enough to see someone out riding on the roads these days but I sure do get some funny looks for taking a horse on a walk. Heck, people here don't even walk their dogs, dogs walk themselves in big backyards and pastures.
