Tender Moments the Bond between Children and Horses

I have been busy working on portrait commissions and wanted to share one of the ones that has been completed. Tender Moments is the title of this painting of a child kissing her horse.

This horse is also much bigger than the little girl who ever so gently is kissing it. Yet the size is completely forgotten. Interacting with horses helps release endorphins and promotes relaxation. By learning to ride and care for horses, kids gain new skills and a sense of mastery that further contributes to an improved state of mind. Horseback riding helps to reduce anxiety in youngsters. Studies have shown that spending time with them can be therapeutic.

This painting is a digital painting and I wanted to show you the amount of texture that can be added to give the painting a very painterly look.
