After the first horse I painted, I received a commission to paint a second one. I often have had trepidation about commissions when the client has too clear of an idea of what they want. It makes me worry I can't make it happen correctly and it stifles the creative process a bit.
But this client was a dream. She had no restrictions and advice whatsoever, which allowed me to paint using my intuition and going with the flow of the painting.
She told me about the young woman this painting is meant for and I kept that in mind while I was working on it. I had such fun with this!
And she loved it! Which was the icing on the cake!
