Paint Party Friday


Its week 5 at Paint Party Friday .
I'd like to share a commission I did for a client. she had this wonderful purple wall in her living room and wanted a large canvas of a horse over her fireplace. I wanted something dramatic that would pull in the purple. The mane has metallic gold but doesn't show well in the photo.
This piece measured about 5 ft long x3 ft high and was done with acrylics.
Shes Loves it by the way!
 Pop on over and join in the party!!!
