I think I'm done!





I'll quit playing now. The painting is done.

Design 4 wagon


I felt there should be some kind of design on the green part of the wagon, and I was right. It looks more like a gypsy wagon now.

The Lady has arrived!








The Countess {as she is known} has arrived at last to take up residence in her wagon and deal with her massive horses. Compared to her diminutive size, these horse are huge. But she has a way with them and they come when she calls them much like her pussycat, tends to wander in whenever she calls him.
Here she is dressed in her usual clothes and jewelry. She has long curly black hair, and you would be hard pressed to tell her age. She never does.
The trailer park where she will soon be taking up residence is in for a surprise.

Now look at the horses...



When this magnificent silver gray pair are hitched up to the wagon,


both are going to look like they belong together. At least that is what I think. lol.



What do you think?

The Make-Over

I have sat and looked at that pink color and looked at it, and it just didn't work right... so.... the gypsy wagon got a make over.



All that was pink is now copper. And I think it works a lot better.


If I had not already painted the wagon, I would have done something different, and used different colors. Because there is a design cut into the upright wooden pieces, I am limited as to how much repainting I can do. I didn't want to lose it in all, due to more paint then it could bare.
So, judge for yourself. Is it better?

Look at these horses!




Well, the grays are just beautiful! I love their mane and tails. I had to file off the other decorations and the manes etc. then paint where it was now white. Then I added the hair for the mane and tail, and I love the way they look now.
