Money to Burn

Originally painted back in the early 2000’s this little gal has gone back under the brush to fix some rubs and bring her up to current standards! She might have been a snappy dresser before, but this time I think she’s really nailed the look…

Money started out as a basic red bay, then turned into a red buckskin with reverse dappling, and is now a much smuttier buckskin with milder dappling. Her white and silver ribbons didn’t survive the new round of pastels, so I’ve repainted them to a nice mottled green. I was planning to go back with copper crosshatching, but I think she looks pretty dapper as is.

I’ve reshaded her eyes so they aren’t quite as stark, touched up her whites and reglossed eyes, inner nostrils and hooves. She has carved ears, but not hooves and all of her seams (and logo) are long gone. She did quite well in Photo Shows back in the day, but I don’t know what the fantasy competition is like nowadays in the Live Shows.
