Me and Gil in oil

Someone said they wanted to see me in a picture so here you go! I am not crazy about posting my pictures, only my beautiful boy. LOL I cropped this down and did the oil painting button in my Print Shop program. You can adjust the intensity, size of the brush and such. Fun! (again click on picture to enlarge to really see details)

Doesn't Gilly look sweet in this picture? He was being a good boy, this is from the group of pictures that were taken by my neighbor, Kim, the day I cantered bareback!

My round pen is back together and we are starting to work with Dennis' program. I will have to get Kim up here to video and take pictures. It's supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow so that will be out of the question for awhile. Darn. But I can still study my books and watch the DVD's.

Kim and I went and got sawdust today so I am set for winter! I have heard that we, here in southeastern Ohio, are supposed to have a hard winter. Boy, I hope not; I would prefer if it just stayed fall all year round!

I still have a lot of pictures of places we have been this past weekend and some others from last year to post. But am having way tooooo much fun playing with pictures!

Lovely pic! Nice to see you Jane! Very cool effect. Isn't it amazing what we can come up with when we tinker with a picture program.

I'm not crazy about posting pictures of myself either, but it is what it is. I think you look and Gilly look just fine.

Yes you are having fun with that photo editing. And it shows. This picture is just lovely. So soft. I love how Gilly's head is wrapped around you in a horsie hug and his eye is so kind.

You did good!

Love your picture of you and Gil. That's a cool idea and maybe I need to explore my photoshop better. ;)

PS. Shmo seems to be doing better tonight. Thx for the nice words yesterday.
