A couple of moths ago we were out painting Plein Air when a couple of ladies rode by on horseback. I took some pictures and finished it yesterday. I posted it on Facebook and the lady bought the painting within minutes!

I like this Brian! No wonder the lady bought it at once!  :clap: :clap:
But one question: how did the lady find you on Facebook? Were you already connected?

We were out painting when the two riders came by and they were fascinated that we were painting. We all started talking about riding and painting then one of them asked if she could make a video as she had a FB page "Trail riding Tuesday". We were all busy swapping FB links and that's how she saw the painting.
We are the Casa Grande Urban Sketchers Group on FB we meet every Tuesday Morning somewhere around the town. Lots of fun.
