New White Horse

I have always loved white horses, which you know already if you have been reading my blog for any time at all. They express to me all that is wonderful in life: joy, exuberance, freedom, and the peace that comes with being who you are, and all you were meant to be. I love their excitement before a storm, the joyful excitement that is in harmony with nature. I love the way they love to run, not to race, not to impress anyone, most of the time not because they are in a hurry, but just because they love it. Do they love feeling the wind blowing their mane, or the sound of their hooves as the strike the ground, or the feeling that they could fly if they would go faster, faster? I don't know. But it seems that way to me. And whenever I see a horse running for the joy of running, I think of how it must please the Creator when He sees everything in His creation doing what they were meant to do. Were you meant to run, or sing, or write, or paint? Were you meant to play with children, or pass the time with the elderly? Were you meant to build bridges or drive trucks or play basketball? Whatever it is, do it with passion, with all the passion you have. You will fulfill your purpose and bring a smile to the Heavenly Father.

This painting is an oil on wrapped, stretched canvas, 9 x 12 x 3/4. All edges have been painted, and no staples show on the sides, so it may be hung with or without a frame. It is available through Ebay. 20% of the sale price will be donated to True Blue Animal Rescue.
This painting has been sold, but watch this spot for more horse paintings!
