The horse below is no more! I painted the area around the horse grey with some drybrushed areas of metallic pewter which doesn't show in the photo......darn! I also put a rod underneath his feet to "ground" him.
I got a chuckle when Renee said my horse had a spring in his step! : ) Did you notice the frame is now painted black? I think the whole thing is better thanks to some much needed advice from friends. Click to enlarge.
