Pretty Painted Pony

I love my Painted Ponies..."artsy" horses designed by talented artists for a public art project that originally featured life-size acrylic horse sculptures.  The natural follow-up was a series of collectible figures, 14 of which are on a shelf in my living room.  It's all the space I have right now.  The photo was edited with Nancy's "Painted Skies" (sorry...but I flattened layers before writing down the number) -- two layers at soft light-- all for Tuesday Muse.  Aren't these terrific textures??

"Anasazi Spirit Horse" 

However, one edit wasn't enough.  


Texture:  Painted Skies 4 -- multiply x2, reduced opacity
Texture: Painted Skies 6 -- multiply and soft light (image was edited with the Orton technique first)
