On the Easel


On Stage, oil, 12 x 16

I have a passion for horses both in their natural environment and in the disciplined school of dressage, a form of equestrian body building.  I’ve spent a bit of time learning dressage on a very large Shire and it is an amazing feeling to subtly coax out the stride of two thousands pounds of pure power or bring it back in collection.  Wasn’t so impressed when the huge beast bolted with me barely hanging on at the sight of a mouse though!
