“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Notice as I finished this piece up the background values are reduced as I felt they were too strong. Looking back at it now I see I should have brought some of the mid orange into the body of the horse... and not just the red.  But I still love the contrast and strength of this piece. The little added turquoise blues on the ground reflected in the mane to carry it up. Your eye as a viewer takes the entire trip in from the left top into the horse and immediately down the body of the horse and out the bottom right with the ground.  A purposeful journey set up through composition and color. 

So in ANY journey ... in EVERY day... I leave you with:

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
