A BRUSH WITH THE HEART
I started this one about 10 days ago. Playing with it off and on. I think I used at least 4 or 5 photos to complete it.
I do believe this is the ornery horse, Palco. Not sure. These photos were from my 2nd photo shoot.
I'm not sure what made me want to paint this one. It is not a painting of extreme happiness. I think maybe it is the idea of being out in wide open spaces as free as can be. We are all human and for those who dream of real freedom, maybe this is part of it.
Just enjoy and maybe think what it might be like living like this.
I had never seen Cole ride before. He was having a blast, and Jerome, I don't know how he did all that running. They were both having a lot of fun.
How do I know?
I took so many photos and in each photo they both had big smiles on their facesIt sure made me chuckle while looking. I couldn't find one photo without a grin.
Their joy was contagious!
Jeromes smile was easy to change, but I had to leave just a touch of Cole's smile while he was yelling.
I don't think most would notice, but I do. LOL
Most of the time, I set my camera for continuous shooting, so I get sort of like a video image as I look through the photos.
Not sure if I am done with this one yet or not. I am a woman. LOL
Palco, the horse Cole is riding is pretty neat. Cowboy, who runs the shoot, has him trained to lay down also. Quite a stead.
It was sort of fun watching Palco at first. Holly was riding him first. He was being kind of a "butthead". LOL
Evidently he does not like to run. Not sure. He must be pretty laid back. Cowboy has those answers.
A horse is a horse, and they each have their own personalities. It's fun to see.
I had not seen much of Palco before, other than the laying down trick Cowboy had demonstrated at the first shoot I went to.
He is a beautiful color.
He is a wonderful horse "actor". He performed spectacularly for us photo "people's". Can't call my self a photographer yet. I am awful noisy at it. I set the camera on continuous shooting and let the camera play.
I do shoot in manual mode most of the time and in Raw Mode. So I have learned a couple things. Not quite totally dumb anymore. Just a tad.
I just hope whoever views this chuckles just a little. I do like painting happiness.
I hope this one puts a smile on anyones face who is viewing it. Better yet laughs!!
I can finally say that I do like one of my paintings. Might be the subject matter that makes me think this. I had so many happy, pleasant thoughts while painting this one. These kids are so much fun to paint and just as much fun to photograph. I never know what might happen. Good kids, good times!
The biggest thing I remember is Cowboy, Grandpa to two, just laughing so loud. He's ornerier than the kids. He is teaching them well. ... and when cowboy told them to do the Frankentein walk, Hunter tried it immediately and didn't stop. We had to tell the other kids to slow dow a bit and walk like Hunter. He is the little guy. Only Miley and Hunter succeeded in doing the "walk".
It was fun to watch Hunter. He was taking this walk very seriously. He would watch where each of his feet were placed even with his capgun pulled.
Maverick, he was just having fun playing with the cap guns.
Alex he's growing up. He took the roll seriously with a sawed off shotgun. I think all of us there were laughing pretty hard. These kids really don't care. They are just having fun. There is more of a history of these kids on my FB page. I have a couple posts about this painting.
I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
