I did go riding today.It was a typical Colorado winter day with cold temperatures and bright sunshine. Sprite felt great, and I was happy to be out there sharing the day with her.
As much as I enjoyed the ride, however, I never really stopped thinking about painting. Sprite's little bay ears were a constant reminder of the color I wanted for Aggie, but had not achieved.
After the ride, I spent some time with Karen and Bob, and again, I found myself mentally comparing shades of bay. I thought to myself, "I am never going to be happy with that Aggie!"...
so I went home and did this. I'm not sure if I fixed her or wrecked her, but either way, I have no regrets. I had to do something.
And, you know, at least I didn't cut her head off!
