Day 8 of 30 Day Painting Challenge

"The Winner"

Many, many years ago when I was about 14 years old, 
my Aunt asked me to paint her a picture of a horses head. 

Although I tried several times I could never get it right and eventually gave up trying. 
However,  I have never forgotten my promise of long ago and now I have 'finally' managed it.

This is a racehorse I named appropriately "The Winner" because I feel victorious at having finally accomplished the horses head that has long been on my 'to do' list. 

By the way, I sent my Aunt the painting, and she was so delighted!  However, told me in her letter that it was such a surprise as she had no memory of asking for a painting of a horses head, and had no idea I thought she would still be waiting for one !!! 
Funny, how life is, huh?
