 I am very happy with this painting. It lifts my spirit whenever I view it...

The horse was introduced to this continent by the Spanish, transforming this continent by providing its inhabitants with a freedom of movement and travel no other animal could provide. They pulled wagons and provided a speedy form of travel for the Natives. Because of the horse these people were now able to travel great distances along with their belongings.

Pegasus, Centaur and Unicorn are forms horses have taken throughout mythology. These magical creatures can see the essence of a man's soul. Once wild horses were in the millions, currently there are only a few hundred herds left. They were pushed off the land by humans and hunted for domestication. Despite domestication, their strong love of freedom has kept their spirit alive.

Wow! Incredible! I own and have had many horses. Paso Fino horses and you have captured a sense of their being. Just beautiful!

This piece is really great! Great mood of colors in this piece. It reminds me of the horse in the third movie of lord of the rings, calm and peaceful. Great choice of subject and thanks for the history lesson, didn't know any of that! Keep on posting and I can't wait to see more of your work!!
