This is my first attempt at an animal painting. Inspired by the wild mustangs we saw on our visit to the outerbanks, 'Jewel' is a tribute to the efforts across the country to preserve and  protect these free roaming horses.


I used the bright colors to accentuate key features like the mane and eyes. Please leave in comments and feedback on this work. 

Jewel is Acrylic on 20"x20" canvas.
