EX ARTE EQUINUS VI

Had to share a nice surprise that came in the mail today.   A present from artist Kenna Al-Sayed,  who used my horse Cappy and a mask I made as subject matter for her incredible pencil drawings.  

She entered them in the prestigious International Equine Art Competition presented by Art Horse Magazine and won two awards.   They are presented in this book.  

Thank You Kenna!  Its a honor.  



Oh - She is making Cappy famous.  Love her doodles too!  



And this is Kenna's latest drawing ( And Doodle ) of Cappy in a bridle I made.   Love it all!
