Simple Silhouette

Sometimes a person just doesn't want to do a extravagant painting. Sometimes it is fun to do a simple painting. This was a painting I started about 4 years ago, but never finished. Originally it was of a black horse gleaming with sweat, so every muscle had a white highlight. Buuuuut, I really didn't know how to paint horses at the time so I gave up on it. Yesterday I picked it up and painted the horse black, quickly slapped a sunset and a hill on and called it a finished painting! 'Western Sunsets' is the name but my mom said that it looks Mexican

Chairlift Painting

The ski resort that I live near opens today, November 25. The resort posted this picture and I immediately fell in love with the snowy picture. A friend of mine said I should give it to the resort to hang in the lodge so I may just do that :)
