It's a painting. And thanks SO MUCH for the little horsies, Havalotta! They're beautiful, and I will treasure them always!

Ahhhhhhhhhh you got them! You are so very welcome! I have never seen a set with a foal nursing before. That made them a really unique find...........
Did Equill do the painting the skull?

Nice perspective.
Where are you going to hang it?

Thanks, Hedgerowe! I really like watercolour. I'm taking a drawing class next semester to hopefully improve my drawing skills. I've never taken drawing lessons before, so I'm hoping it helps.

Havalotta, I have a few skulls, too. I also collect deer antlers, I like them, and I don't know why I like them so much. They're fun to paint and draw. I have a big box of them in my trunk right now, LOL! Someday I'll bring them into the house so I can paint and draw them to my heart's content! I really like you people skeleton displays, too..ROFL! I wanted to do something like that in my front yard, but the neighbors would probably have a stroke.

I got a gift from an artist friend of a muskrat skull beautifully mounted to a wood block.

Prairie............ My loving husband had a guy come over to our land we were thinking of building on. He dug 3 big holes with a claw into the soil I think maybe it was to see if it met a perk test or something of that sort. He LEFT the holes...... I didn't know what to do with them as is (Except rebury them with a lot of hard work) so I did that to them instead.
