Whose Fanny is Cuter?

8 X 10 Oil on Canvas
I have many talented people in my life - and not all are artists, in the strictest sense. Some are artistic with fabric, some are artistic with their heart. Some are just plain artistic at being a friend - all have gifts of the spirit and use them well. Among many things, Trista is an artist with horses - AND she has a cute fanny (as her husband Scott will attest to). Trista not only breeds and trains really nice horses, she takes care of them from head to toe. And she cares for my horses' toes, too. I couldn't resist getting this photo of her working on Easy last fall. She has promised to teach me how to trim hooves, and I think I will be ready with her next visit. If I'm lucky I may even be able to trade her this painting for her effort.....Trista? :-)
Exodus 35:31-33 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts- 32 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 33 to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic craftsmanship.
