In the Misty Moonlight

I love painting horses, and I love creating a mood. White horses lend themselves well to mood-making because their beautiful white coats reflect the colors of the light. And light is what sets a mood. I think of this painting as a lyrical one, poetry in line and color, and I hope that it brings the viewer into a place of peace and harmony. When I need a sense of peace, I can find it in nature - animals, flowers, the sea - someplace untouched and unaffected by the stress and pressure of human existence. I learn from nature to be exactly what God created me to be, nothing more and nothing less, to cease from striving, competing, achieving, and simply to be, and to enjoy.
