As promised, here is the Jellibaby that Addi brought and that I glazed while she was here. I've named her "Maisy". I usually give horses done during artist gatherings names that somehow remind me of the time I spent, and with her I wanted something to remind me of the time I spent with both Addi and Mel. Since she didn't remotely look like a Trogdar (my youngest son's preference), I chose a diminutive version of "maize" for our time in the Maize Maze. (Don't worry Mel - I have evil plans to reflect Trogdar in one of your horses' names!)
I had originally thought I would sell her and keep the second (as yet unfinished) Jellibaby, but I want to wait and pair her with one of Addi's really neat mares once they are ready. I have her mother's color pictured so clearly in my mind that I need to make them a pair. But that isn't going to happen unless I place her out of sight in the back of the china cabinet before I get more attached to her. She's a really cute baby!
I am also color-correcting pictures of Addi's second Vixen/Imp pair. She'll probably run those on her own blog, so watch there for them.
