I LOVE The Rain But Seriously?:

Well this has been a fun couple of days! NOT! lol  I love the rain. I LOVE it. I really do.  I just don't wanna be standing ankle deep in nasty basement water in flip flops while bent over plunging a clogged storm drain while a monsoon of it beats down the back of my shirt!
And that's just my parent's house.  I have to do MINE tomorrow. 
I love the rain. I love the rain. I love the rain.

We really needed it after nearly two months of drought.  We just didn't need it all in one day.
Before I started collecting animals two by two, I was working on the big Lion model.  He's coming along. I should have some pictures of him sometime tomorrow. Since the water's been pumped out of the basement, I can go back down there and paint without a row boat, so I'll have some more stuff up soon.
Get wet!

Hackney Gets Color:

The hackney is finally getting color.  So are my clothes.  lol  I'm planning to go much darker and richer.  But here he is so far.  I didn't get every single layer but I got some of them to show how he went darker.  Most of the layers were so faintly different it was hard to tell, so I skipped a few in between for pictures.  Here he is start to finish. 
Even though he's not done yet, so it's start to .....right now. 
He will be available as a MH$P Buy It Now before going to Ebay.  If he doesn't get any offers he'll go to Ebay.

He'll have a halter when he's completed, and the base. I think he'll make a great show piece hitched to a harness and cart.

Hackney Updates:

He's ready for sanding and priming.  I LOVE him!  He's going to be a deep mahogany bay with a large star and two socks I think.  That's what I'm picturing.

I also have the little ASB stablemate deep in the painting phase. 
He's cute too.  I didn't think I'd do him this color but I have done so many plain chestnut sorrel, and palomino Saddlebreds I just wanted to be a little more colorful this go around.

"Capricorn" Nearing Completion"

I don't remember what i called this guy. I thought I named him before but I don't know and I'm far too lazy to go rooting through my past entries looking. lol  So I'm going to call him "Capricorn".  He's got new amber yellow golden eyes and he's getting more layers. The Hackney had more sculpting but I couldn't move it to take pictures so he'll have to dry first and then i'll take some shots of him tomorrow.
