Born a Horse Lover
Equines are the animal that has fascinated me the most, for my whole life. I am drawn to their beauty, the way the light falls on them at different times of day or in different weather, the endless range of expressions, and the features that make each horse unique. It is only natural that I would gravitate towards creating horse artwork as I began to explore my creativity.
Being enveloped in the energy of a horse is healing to me and something that I seek out every day through spending time with my own horses as well as creating images of horses.
Painting Horses through Intuition
When I am working on a painting, the energy of the horse that I am painting begins to come through. I get “downloads” that tell me what color to pick next or what symbol or technique “wants to” happen. There can be an uncomfortable feeling of discord while the painting is in process. Resolving this feeling is one of the things that keeps me going on a painting.
I keep working with the feelings of what to do next along with the feelings of discord to follow the path that the energy of that horse is leading me on. Finally, I reach a point where the painting feels complete and I know I am finished with another piece of horse artwork.
