Meet Durango. He posed for a painting in the Bringing Horses Home series.... a little bit about him: he lives out in the field in front of our house. He doesn’t really have an owner.... I keep thinking about that, because I'd love to give his owner a print of the piece as a thank you for letting me paint him, but there doesn't seem to be anyone. This is because as best I can figure out, he belongs to the US forest service.
I noticed that he and the mule he lives with eat dirt on purpose, which if I remember correctly means they are super nutrient deficient. Is that right, horse girls?
So I recently started bringing him things like a salt lick and dewormer as well as some nutrient dense treats. Now, he follows me around like a puppy on my morning walks and parks out at the fence in front of my house hoping I'll come back with more treats 😍
You know what it's like to be a part of this special horse loving club. I swear, it's like having a "horse gene" - you either have it, or you just don't.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know we can't all have a horse (just yet!), but that does not mean you can't have one in your house. Because you can have a piece of art that symbolizes your special love for these magical beings.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Accordingly, meet the Bringing Horses Home Series.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oooohhh I am so excited to share these with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I put together a small series of portraits. These are pieces that let a horse live in your home. Looking at you with all that love and intensity and acceptance that only an equine has. These pieces are meant to create a sense of magic and connection to your soul-animal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You guys are 90% of the reason I paint. I have so much fun painting, but then seeing the art light up your life makes it all SO much more worth it!
