They're beautiful, aren't they?
I'm planning on handling the surface ... so my horses are walking on something. But, it's really just about done.
Great emails have been arriving related to my NYC shower paintings. Those and my horses, in finished form ... I think ... will be part of my show at the Old Brogue in May. I've got some other plans for them, too ... Let's see if anyone else goes along with it.
All I can think of is the other people staying at the same hotel ... not knowing what's happening in the shower upstairs from them. Not your typical hotel activity.
