When Norman decided to do a painting of our friends horse he thought to take it one step further. He added a wreath to the fence to add a touch of Christmas.
Here you can see the original photo on the side. The painting was also done without the wreath. But the beauty of a painting is being able to take creative license and add or subtract elements to the painting.
Being digital it makes it easy to have more than one version and to be able to customize one version to a particular occasion as in this case adding a wreath gives the painting a holiday feel.
In this case the painting can make a great personal holiday card as well.
