Not much

I'm having a bad day today. I tried to sit down and work on tack. I cut out all the pieces for Sherry's saddle but try as I might, I just couldn't seem to make any progress on that. It was one dumb mistake after another. All these years and somedays I still can't manage the most basic tack making skills... So, I've been frustrated and irritable. It's hot, the kids are whiny and everything is more difficult than it should be. Yep, it's been been that kind of day!

I've been taking my frustration out on this poor Victix. I traded for her awhile back and she came with a smooth but unspectacular airbrush paintjob. I thought she'd look better darker so I broke out my pastels and this is where she is now.
Honestly, I think that if I continue with finishwork I will need to switch over to oils. Maybe it's just the mood of the day, but I am really not loving the pastels right now.
I am officially done for the day. I'm afraid if I continue on it's going to get worse rather than better, and I'll end up stripping the whole thing and starting from scratch...


  1. For the record, I have spent the evening working on models with pastels, and I only wish mine came out looking like that :P

  2. Don't strip her Jen! She's luscious looking.

  3. Don't you dare strip her! She's spectacular! Can't you see her in the dressage ring?

  4. *in a whisper* FIX HER FEET!
