When we set up Michelle's artwork, we thought it would be nice to include the photos that were the "inspiration" for the art.
Mostly, because people make comments like "did that horse really look like that?", especially the wild horses.
What we found out is that people really enjoyed seeing the whole creative process! I think it looked pretty cool too!
First is the cover art ... and all the photos she used to create the cover art:
Next is Mesteno, and the photos she used for it:
And lastly, Corine, the "freeze brand" one:
I think showing how Michelle got the inspiration for the drawings and paintings adds so much to the display as a whole.
And it stops the questions of "did that horse really look that good?" that seems to come up here and there!
What do you think?
