Childhood Dreams II: Charge of the Light Brigade by 

Even without having read the Charge of the Light Brigade, little girls and boys still played knights and damsels when I was little. I think it had to do with all the princess movies and the Sir Galahad comic strip when I was a kid. We always had magnificent steeds and the boys would be carrying sticks to do the jousting. It got so bad, the fathers starting buying dowel sticks so we wouldn’t have a sharp point to impale each other on. :o) This was in the lands of the cowboys and Indians too. We, as a collective group, grew up with cattle rustlers, branding times, cattle and horse drives, etc. We all had play pistols, in the summer those became squirt guns. We had loads of fun pretending. In some ways, I don’t think my grandchildren have had near the freedom to be kids like I was. :o)

Created from a sketch of a photo on my iPad in ArtRage. I painted it in ArtRage as well. I finished this up in Photoshop. Total time was six hours because of the detail on the mantel on the horse.

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)
