7" x 10" watercolor on paper
Sometimes it is easy to forget what a privelege it is simply to be alive. But horses don't seem to have that problem. They have no inhibitions, no social constraints holding them back from expressing who they really are. They are beautiful and powerful and honest about how they feel. Sometimes I wish I were more like that.
I finished a book by my favorite author Maggie Stiefvater the other day called The Scorpio Races. I loved it so much. So much that I wanted to paint something that would capture my feelings for this beautiful and moving book. This is my first effort. I'm sure I'll revisit this theme again. :)
