His name is 'Midnight' and I really, really enjoyed this piece! AND, you will never believe what this horse is made of...the 'cotton' from the cottonwood tree! This 'cotton' actually came from the Ukraine. It was sent to me by the instructor in our last month's class on the guild. This one was taught by Alyona, a wonderful master artist from Ukraine and she sent the 'cotton' to us. We have a ton of this floating through the air in the summer...looks like snow in summer sometimes! But I did not know how to collect it then. Next year I will have to talk some little fellow into shimmying up a tree to pick some of the seed pods for me before they 'pop'!
I plan on more of these! Hmmmmm...what else could I do with this...ideas, anyone?
