I have been working on some art projects for a digital imaging class. These were all created in Adobe Illustrator. I was required to submit one abstract, one using text, one inspired by the work of a well known artist, and one of my choice. This is what I created: 

Painted Ponies-This was taken from a black and white drawing that I had created with a horse peeking out from behind a wall, mirror imaged, and colored in. Partway through the process I wondered if I was crazy for creating something with so many details, because each tiny little space had to be colored in. I think it would be fun to recolor it sometime in another color scheme...if I ever have a lot of hours that I have nothing to do with!

Dark Horse Yearling-This is my official piece containing text. I used another horse drawing that I had done. 

Horse Power-This piece I drew in Illustrator. I thought it would be fun to make it have a textile look. 

Dream Horse-This was the piece I created that was inspired by the work of a known artist. I found a lot of abstract horses that were similar to one another, but I chose Marcia Baldwin officially as my inspiration for this piece. If you look closely you may be able to find the hidden text in it.
