King Cole Posse

Near my easel I have a old secretary desk I use to organize my paints.  Above it I place things from my collection that I want to paint. Often times they will hang out there for some time, as I place more and more things around them. Having them there allows me to see them, think about them, and imagine with them. Imagine what kind of scenes I can set up with them, imagine what kind of story they have to tell.  I was sitting looking at a painting on my easel and a thought hit me when my eyes fell on one of these horses standing near Old King Cole.
"Of course!" I thought and I begin to play.
