Last in my current series of writing about commissions is the most recent one pictured here. It's titled "Ready to Play" and is of a young and spirited foal. The collector had recently purchased 2 of my horse paintings, Tobiano and Paso Fino. After receiving those and hanging them on her wall, she decided that they needed to be a family and she gave me a call with her idea. Young horses are always a lot of fun to paint. They have a mischievious look in their eye and have such boundless energy. I needed to match the background colors to make them look like they were all painted around the same time. It has me thinking that I need to do some paintings of foals on a more regular basis to be offered for sale.
