Drawing of Jessie

In my horsemanship challenge group there is a lady who,s mom is a artist, she just draws for fun and she has been randomly picking a few horses she likes and she draws them.  The second one she picked was Jessie!  I was surprised and I like the pic so I asked her if I could buy it, she said sure and so all the details were figured out and I just got it in the mail.  its even nicer than I thought.  Wow I feel so lucky.  Not the picture I woulda picked but still super cool!
Here is the original, I just snapped it one day in the arena while I was videoing, actually turned out better than I expected

And her drawing of it, amazed how much it looks like the original!

I guess its always more amazing cause I can not draw worth beans, lol actually this winter I picked up a sketch pad and drawing book to try to learn, but its not going super well my coffee cup is recognizable but it don't look like the original at all.  Maybe I should stick to abstract lol.  Now I just gotta find a frame and a place to hang it.

There's a book called Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain that is really helpful for learning to draw. Drawing is all about spaces and shapes and light and dark, rather than trying to actually draw "something" draw the spaces and the "something" will form.

That is absolutely beautiful! And so very special to boot. You will treasure that always, I'm sure -- a nice thing to have in the family.

And...I like Shirley's wise words above about drawing. I'm going to hunker those down into my heart.
