Free Picture Description

In 2012, my wife and I visited Asheville, North Carolina and I was mesmerized by the beauty of this old place.  We tour a tour around and in one of the stops, I saw this mule eating grass.  I stopped the car and went out to the plains to get closer and took a picture of this mule.  This picture has been edited using  Simon Funk's creation, Painteresque.  By the way, this is my first sighting of a mule.  For those who are looking for drawing inspiration, this mule can be a model for a clip art.  This picture can also be used as an illustration for baby books or eBooks to represent letter "M".
