Good Morning Folks...
This is your L-A-Z-Y Traffic Report, coming to you live and in color. As you can see, traffic is at a complete standstill in this corner of Wyoming.
People traveling east thru Wyoming, are advised not to.

Painting horses has been very difficult for me, so I decided to challenge myself by painting a bunch of them.
What was I thinking??:):)
The light brown pony was back in the back, is the only one done by a stencil. The rest I did. What I did do, to save time, was paint about 3 horses, then duplicate their layers, then paint them differently from the originals.

Ha! This is probably the most of a jam you'll ever get there.

I know how you feel, Mike. Painting horses (of all creatures :rolleyes:) is not one of my favorites. But you did good and I congradulate you on your fine work. :D:D

Nice work and great title.

Here's a look at a Jersey traffic jam from my neck of the woods... (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/events/1996/olympics/daily/july24/cartoons/spect3a.gif)

Beautiful painting of the beautiful corner of the world. Anyway, you kind of shocked me up Barney, i was expecting a yellow taxi at least.

LOL...Well, you know, perhaps a yellow taxi might have been an interesting fit amongst the horses.. :):)
Thanks so much AT!

This turned out awesome BB! This is the only kind of traffic jam I don't mind being stuck in for a while!;) Great technique on painting the horses... A lot of painting is learning a little bit of trickery here and there... Sometimes it's all smoke and mirrors!;):D:D

Thank you Sketch. I really appreciate it.

Glad to hear you say that comment about smoke and mirrors. What I know about painting wouldn't fill up a thimble, but, I think that at times, it's very much the "illusion" of something, rather than the perfect reproduction of it.

I think they are very horse-like. I am no expert however so don't take my word for it. Good going!
