Zorro, 8x8 oil

Zorro, 8x8 oil
Here is my final and favourite of the 8x8 horse paintings.  I couldn't resist painting this one.  I love the foreshortening of the neck and the huge nose of the horse.  I smile every time I look at it. 

In the future, (sometime), I would love to do larger paintings of horses.  It would be a lot of fun to head out to a farm with my paints and camera and spend time with these amazing creatures.  It's really hard to do them justice on a small canvas like this.
