Horse in Water
This peaceful painting was roughly based off of one of my neighbors mare taking a cool drink on a very hot day. The creek runs along our property as well as our neighbors and is heavily canopied in areas so the horses love to wade in and splash about under the cooling shade.
As an artist water tends to fascinate me. It is a challenge to my artistic style to get it right. I love the limited color palette of this horse painting as well as the serene feeling it gives when viewing it.
The original horse painting was done in oil pastel on museum board.
“You must learn to be still in the midst of activity
and to be vibrantly alive in repose.”
