Sooooo, after a very long week with my mother in the hospital I will hopefully be back painting soon. I did revisit this image for an illustration, but that is the only painting I've done in awhile. I used this mare and foal for the background and overlaid a computer drawn image of a double helix wrapping around their necks with chromosomes floating around. The composite image will run in the Quarter Horse Journal highlighting an article about the equine genome mapping project. I can post the complete illustration after it runs in the magazine if anyone is interested.
BTW, mom is bouncing back from surgery, appreciating the fact that she appears to have several more than nine lives wrapped into this one!
