Grazing Thoroughbred

What does a child do when her dad works at Dixon Pencil Co?  She learns to do graphite drawings because dad brings home shiny yellow Ticonderoga Number 2 Soft pencils :-)  I haven't done one in awhile but ran across a box of these pencils...probably the last ones dad got before he passed away in 1993.  I treasure them and so, in his honor I drew "Grazing Thoroughbred" with a Ticonderoga Number 2 Soft pencil:

This graphite is 8 X 6 inches on Bristol Board Paper. 
Its up for sale in my gallery on Daily Paintworks.
