Solar is as Pretty as a Picture

Portrait of Solar by Emily DielemanThis beautiful portrait of Solar was done by my friend Emily Dieleman.

Many wonderful people have been supporting Solar and I so far in the Prodigious Fund’s 100-Day Trainer Challenge. I wanted to recognize these folks with a thank you gesture, but with what? A lock of Solar’s hair? A hoofprint autograph? A bag of all-natural Solar-fueled fertilizer? Instead I thought a simple thank you card might be best.

Emily graciously agreed to draw a picture of Solar that I can use to create a set of one-of-a-kind thank you cards. I’ve known Emily for years through a shared love for Haflingers. I first witnessed her artistic talent when she would sketch our ponies at the local fair. She does a fantastic job of capturing the uniqueness of each horse, and her skill has grown with years of education and practice. I just love this picture of Solar!

You can see more of Emily’s artwork or contact her via Facebook, here. She also has an online Etsy shop, here.

Thank you Emily for capturing Solar in this drawing. I can’t wait to start sending cards out to all the folks who have been a part of this process so far–thank you all! Readers, please take a second to check out my supporters page in recognition of those who are making this experience extra great.

If you’re a fan of art, you might enjoy seeing Emily’s first draft of the above picture:
