Welcome to my Painted Pony blog!

I've very recently started painting original painted ponies, using the "Paint Your Own" (by Enesco) painted pony designs.  When I started this, I was a little overwhelmed at the beautiful, imaginative, custom ponies that others were painting, selling and collecting.  I've decided to start this blog as a "window" to show my work and hopefully have discussion with others that share the love of the wonderful world of equine!! 
As I've researched the Painted Pony history and story of their growth, I've been amazed at the wonderful talent that is in the "soul" of the hundreds of artists out there!  Now, I've decided, that I would try and express myself through these wonderful, collectible horses...I've been "expressing" my love for these animals every day for 50 years, riding, showing, caring, I will try to continue to do that, through my brush!  I hope you'll visit often and please leave comments or suggestions...I'm open to new ideas or constructive criticism!!  Remember, my blog is in the beginning stage, so bear with me as I gear up!!  Thanks for stopping by!
