*First Comment Curtsey* Very clever! I think you've painted it well. But then, I'm scared to death of oils, so I'm always impressed when someone manages to work with them. This is a really interesting piece, thouhg. I love the old-time horse ride. So creative. John Ryan Byrd

I know artists are usually their own worst critics.... But honestly, I think the angle of the head looks okay. She might could use a little more shadow beneath the curve of her jaw, to contrast face and neck a bit more....but otherwise looks fine to me. The foreshortening of the leg is very effective.
Altogether, this is really good, especially considering it's your first oil painting. Great work!

I love how you have this sexci, grown woman who looks futuristic riding on a cracke and aged horse ride. I may be looking too far into this, but to me it’s like saying that each future generation should be able to enjoy what was in their past, instead of dismissing it or being ashamed. That and pleasures can come in the simplest of ways.
