I had some leftover sections of board, so I cut them in sort of an atc size. There'd been a series of photos on WC of the Gypsy Vanner stallion called Percy. I've got artwork to do but decided to go ahead and mess with one of his photos.  I started scratching it out, but it just wasn't working. I dug around and found a fiberglass brush and voila, there was the horse....on black. It was yucky. So, I scraped the whole background off. Well, plain white was no better than plain black. I hunted down my paints. Suddenly, I really liked it. It turned into one of those "bemused" pieces, i.e., did I do that? Yep, I sure did.

This one is available, and I'll probably frame it in a few minutes. E-mail me for details at
