I have waited 12 years for this!

Appaloosa Foal, about 44" high (life size), for a girl's room in Mahtomedi.

Seriously. I was That Girl Who Drew Horses, back in high school. When I began painting murals, I thought that naturally I would get to paint horses on walls from time to time. That was a dozen years ago; this was today. While I have had two jobs in which horses were incidental to the picture, this is the first time in all these years that someone has asked me to simply paint a horse.

I was thrilled. And I have had a lovely day.


  1. OMG - I seriously just want to pet that gorgeous little guy! Awesome!

  2. I had SO MUCH FUN with this. So much. <3

    And the girl whose room it is, is wonderful.

  3. so very cool
    so very very cool

  4. I still love this little guy-you just know he's been named.
