Two Appaloosas playing in the night in the frigid sky of the Northern plains ....a courtship that has grown now evolves into a lifelong partnership.
This painting has a lot of metallic paints in the horses which cannot be seen in the photos It has a nice shimmer and accent to the piece.The Appaloosa is an American horse breed best known for its colorful spotted coat pattern. There is a wide range of body types within the breed, stemming from the influence of multiple breeds of horses throughout its history. Each horse's color pattern is genetically the result of various spotting patterns overlaid on top of one of several recognized base coat colors. The color pattern of the Appaloosa is of interest to those who study equine coat color genetics, as it and several other physical characteristics are linked to the leopard complex mutation.
