This week the DPW challenge was horses. A good friend of mine just happened to post a gorgeous photo of her equine friend, Futuro, on Facebook a few days ago. I fell in love with this picture and knew I had to paint it!
On our sailing vacation this July, we saw more Kingfishers than any other cruise. I love these birds! When I saw that last weeks DPW bird challenge offered up a photo of a kingfisher, I had to paint it!
I've been out sailing for the past month and I'm finally back in the studio painting my heart out. I actually finished "Go Jump in the Lake", before taking off on vacation, but never did photograph it. I was inspired to paint this for the summer vacation challenge. I love capturing movement in paintings.
