Paint Party Friday: Week 3, Year 5 Check-In

Welcome to Week 3 of Year 5 of Paint Party Friday!
 
This week the random number generator chose #81 - Catharine. For an Illustration Friday challenge theme "Ruckus", Catharine stretched and came up with this wonderful painting of contrasting patterns and awesome horses. Can't you just see them moving all around and hear them neighing in your mind?
