18″x18″ oil on stretched canvas,
This horse participated in our town parade last year (and the year before that!) and is such a terrific example of nature’s beauty. So effortless, so commanding, so much organic shape. Sometimes when I’m driving to a distant park, I think I see this horse in a pasture but it’s always too far away for me to get a decent photo — this horse is totally black, so standing in the shade does not result in much for me to work with. At the parade, he lifts his head proudly and has lots of sunlight glinting off him. Now I’m starting to gush. Can you tell I just love him?
