Art: Best Friends by Artist Michele Carra Milana
Ashley kisses her friend, Blaze. They head for the barn. Another glorious summer day has ended.

This piece was inspired by a photograph that I took many years ago of my friend's young girl and the horse that she loved. These two were inseparable and could always be found with their heads together, sharing a secret.

I first created the piece in clay, then made a mold. Hydrostone (plaster and crushed stone) was poured into the mold. After the hydrostone dried, I applied a multi-step patina consisting of shellac, oil paint, bronze power, pigment, and wax.

The piece is strung with wire for hanging, or can be displayed on an easel. Limited edition of 50.
