Borrowing from the Barn...

“In riding a horse, we borrow freedom” ― Helen Thompson

This appaloosa was painted back in fall of 2006. It was a favorite of mine.  One day I would love to attempt a repaint but I know it will never catch the same spirit.  It has been the cover of the National Appaloosa magazine and made into posters at their national convention. 

Painting horses is a freeing experience. Riding them gives so much more freedom.. feeling the wind against you, leaning into the horse and feeling as one as you gallop forward. I hope people can feel the energy and freedom in my work.

"This day is holy to our Lord; and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10
