Here it is. I got the box at Hobby Lobby for $3.00 at 50% off, paid $4.00 for the plexiglass at a glass store where they drilled the holes for the paint cups for me. I paid about $2.00 for the paint containers. I wanted something with covers to keep the paint protected. I attached 2 screws - one to the bottom section and one to the lid and wound wire around them to keep the lid in a workable position. All together it cost me about $10.00.

Well, this is another 6x8, but it was fun to do because its a study and I was after the action. I like leaving the background so its just the color of the paper and having all the action right in the middle. Studies are very enjoyable!

Well, I said I was tired of 6x8's, but it was the only size I had with me yesterday, so here it is. And it wasn't too bad. I painted with my friends and that always makes for an interesting time. We've been painting together for about 6 years now and its great to see how we've all improved.

Here's the final version. I mostly worked on the landscape surrounding the horses and left them alone, except for a bit of refining on their edges and faces of the two on the right. I added the fence posts and wire of the fence with a palette knife and a few strokes of varying warm and cool color in the grasses.
