Most of us, at some point, wanted a pony for Christmas. Some of us are now blessed enough to have them (in all shapes and sizes; my "pony" is a great big Percheron cross) or know people who do.
If you have a horse (any size or breed) and would like to submit photos for my challenge, I'd love it. Email me your best shots. You will have the first right, but absolutely no obligation, to purchase the resulting piece of art. I will set the price at a flat $99 for this, my first year of Christmas Ponies. This is a promotional price for the Pony Project only. Once these slots are filled, additional pieces will be available in a general price range from $145 to $300 depending on size and complexity of the drawing.
For some basic photography help, see my post on Getting Dog Portraits that Don't Suck; almost all of it applies to horses, the one difference being that camera distortion is more of a problem with them. I've had pretty good results by standing back a little bit and using my zoom function instead of getting too close to the big horsey nose. :-)
