I have just finished painting Tia Maria. She is the most gentle horse with the colours from the drink. Like many of us she has had to suffer not being able to get out much as the areas where she rides are saturated with water and very muddy. The owner was delighted to receive the painting yesterday and when she said she would show the painting to the horse, it made me wonder what they must think if they saw their image in a mirror. Presumably another horse, although with so much still to uncover about what animals think it would be fascinating to know.  I didn’t stay to see what Tia Maria thought of her portrait, but her owner loved it.
