Don, You know I love horses and you did a great job with this painting. The scene is truly typical for horses on a summer day and makes such a lovely painting.

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Bri. I'll probably be around on the 21st, but may not be in the studio. Give me a call before you get here, OK?

Hi Rahina--very nice to hear from you, and thanks for the encouragement!

Love this painting, Don. We see a lot of sleepy afternoons this time of year in Texas.

Erin Kaiser said...

I am imagining the warm, gentle summer breeze rustling by these two as they stand in the shade getting cool. What a beautiful scene, Don! Great work!

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Marilyn. In that Texas summer heat a siesta is a great idea, right?

Don Gray said...

Thanks so much, Erin--welcome to my blog!
