“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”  ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Follow the Leader was a favorite at recess time when we were children.  Be careful what leader you follow as an adult.  

These horses were painted for one of my first gallery shows in NY in 2006.  The composition lends itself to hot summer days with horses in the meadow seeking shade and a cool stream. And why am I sitting at this computer?  

But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. Luke 22:26
