I don't usually have quite as clear of a final painting in mind when starting paintings of this size and larger so it's not really the best example of how I work, generally quite a bit more things come and go in the composition, but I still thought it would be fun to share.

I love the idea they took all that matters. They look so content, even though they lost their house.
The horse carrying them through life.
