Painting for the Cure

It was a happy Christmas delivery today of the last of this year's portraits. It's always nice to see the grin on the face of the recipient, and the words, "I love it--it looks just like him!"
Meet Nagid--the beautiful black Arabian owned by the Platinum rider at this year's Komen Ride For the Cure. Cheryl raised over $7,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and in return, she recieved this custom portrait of her horse. There is something striking about a black horse trimmed with pink ribbons, and I'm glad the owner wanted the ribbons included in his portrait. I am happy to be able to contribute to the Ride for the Cure in this way, and during the day of the ride I was able to set up a booth and see all the horses and riders and meet some wonderful people.
