There is Something About a Horse

"There is Something About a Horse"

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." ~ Winston S. Churchill

I've been creating more fine art photography pieces lately. The story behind this one, for those who like to hear my stories...

On a frosty morning around 10AM on October 21, 2018, I was out looking for wildlife. In this location there was a coyote on a kill the day before, and I hoped to spot him again. As it sometimes happens, I didn't get what I wanted. But when I saw these beauties in the foggy field I had to stop. The feeling of serenity just watching them watch me was overwhelming. I knew I had something I wanted to work with, but I didn't expect it to take two years before my vision came to fruition.

My camera is the first tool I reach for, followed by Photoshop. Since I can't paint what I envision, I create with my Photoshop brushes instead. There is an oil paint technique used to create this image, so look closely to see the brushstrokes. I find it fun to experiment, and when I get it just the way I want it, I know it!

For those who love horses, wouldn't this look great hanging on a wall where it could be admired? It's available here in my Fine Art section. And keep an eye out for an email coming shortly to my subscribers. My biggest sale of the year starts November 2nd!

If I can help you with anything, drop me a line. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Until next time,
