Even so, I am Thankful!

My most recent painting was a real trial. I wanted the colors to pop, so I'd planned on it having an orange face with a darker blue neck. The orange was just too much, so I started glazing with other colors, red, more yellow, and finally some blues and purples, and I got... a brown horse. Since there are no brown horses in my pasture, I had to pump up the color in the neck area, thus the pops of red and green. And of course the signature multicolor mane!
