Believe it or Not, I'm Back!

Wow, does time fly.  I've been riding horses in the arena and trail riding.  Also doing a lot of yard work and garden work.  That doesn't even count what I've been doing with my own horse.
However, I've finally started another project.  I'm not sure of a name for it yet but when I saw this photo I just had to get permission to paint it.  Sam Caporn has graciously consented to let me draw and paint this wonderful touching scene.  So, here's the beginning of my next WIP.  I hope you will like it and follow along with me.  I've always enjoyed a challenge and I'm sure this one will live up to it as well since there will be a lot of firsts for me with this portrait.
