This is my attempt at playing with photoshop. I believe this grand fellow is one of the largest in the state (possibly the country - I can't remember what the guide said. Either way, he was huge.) Using this photo as a guide, this could be a fun contemporary painting. I might give it a try...
I paddeled the broad river in a kayak, rode my bike up the "medium-difficulty" mountain trail to visit the gardens which still had some very nice roses on display, enjoyed Bass Pond where part of the movie "Last of the Mohicans" was filmed, road a horse through the trails in the woods and walked each morning for miles. Needless to say, this is a fantastic way to start out my new exercise/health DAILY routine. But it won't be quite as much fun as it is in Asheville. I do love that area of the country.
I have photos of everything but today and tomorrow I am busy "catching up" on my house chores and yard work. Yes, there is a price to pay for 3 lazy, wonderful days with my teenage daughter and her two friends!
Meanwhile, here is another version of this beautiful Belgian horse. I will be posting the real thing later this week and sharing the photos I took.
