Sneak Peek at a Fancy Horse

“We can’t change other people. Certainly we have made others feel guilty enough so that they have given in and done things our way. And we have won many power struggles. But ultimately we can’t claim ownership of anyone else’s mind, and we aren’t the stewards of anyone else’s life. We may feel diminished by our lack of control initially, but in time we will love the freedom of living only our own lives. The extra time we’ll have and the peace we’ll know will comfort us.”

–Karen Casey

Sneak Peek at a Fancy Horse

Remember the horse rolling around on his back?  You can see it here.  I started something really different with this horse.  It may take me a long time to finish it.  Oh… the pencil lines?  I forgot to take a progress picture of this after I erased those.  🙂

The plain brown horse is from a photo reference by SkattyKat at WetCanvas.
