3rd Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show Donation

3rd Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show Donation

This handsome guy is a Breyer Stablemate G3 Mustang stallion painted into a clover-spotted green appaloosa with a white clover star on his forehead. He was a donation to the 3rd Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show to be held in October of this year (NAN qualification and website link pending). He was a sibling donation to the bay drafter I did for the M.O.M. Live Show donation, run by the same showholder.

Much like the bay drafter was my first attempt at dappling, this little guy was my first attempt at painting clovers! I naively thought that painting the 4-H clover logo would be a walk in the park, but I ended up revising the idea into a simpler clover shape.

I also had fun working clover shapes into the edges of the blanket, so he looks like someone dumped a bucket of snow on a cloverfield! :) Continue reading 3rd Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show Donation
