'Beauty, Strength, and Grace' SOLD
5" x 7" oil on panel
I love grey horses. Their dark muzzles and eyes just get to me. I think it's because when I was little I went to visit this miniature horse farm (oh the cuteness!!) and there was this gorgeous, tiny, white grey stallion with the most beautiful little face. When he walked over to me, friendly as could be, I cupped my hands together and his entire muzzle fit in my palm. It is such a vivid memory that I can still feel the heat of his breath on my skin. I dreamed for years about owning a horse just like him one day. That day hasn't come yet but I'm not giving up on that dream! :)
This is the last painting in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I'm really kind of sad that it's over. :( Leslie Saeta, the mastermind of this challenge, and Carrie Waller had a great show today on Artists Helping Artists all about it, with lots of comments from participating artists.
