Hand painted horse accent pillow

My thing right now is accent pillows. I wanted to make some durable pillows for my son's room that would show his interests, so I purchased some canvas/duck material and have some design ideas, but first I wanted to do a test pillow...I went with a horse design because I love horses and horse art and statues are throughout my home.
I made an envelope style pillow cover, hand drew my horse and then turned it into a stencil that I can use over and over, traced the stencil onto my pillow cover and then painted it in black with gold accent. I think it came out nice for my first attempt. Now I have to make my son's pillows.
