I've had the desire to paint a horse for sometime now. I have painted horses in the past but I was ready for a "new breed." On a recent morning, I announced this to my husband, Carl, and I began pondering the fact that I would need to prepare a new canvas on which to paint my new breed horse.  As we walked to our offices, I noticed a canvas that I had already prepped, and it even had some background painting that I had begun. “I can paint a horse on that canvas,” I thought.

Carl glanced at the canvas and remarked, “Look there is a horse!” I immediately saw the form of a horse that Carl had noticed - all I had to do was bring him out!  Thus the title of this painting, “Essence of Horse.” This very sweet and extremely confident horse emerged through the process of creativity that was not entirely my own, but rather one of shared experience.
