White Stallion in the Snow - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!


...forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead...
A little late for my New Year's greeting.  This painting was supposed to be finished a couple of weeks ago.  But it has been said - and quoted often on this blog - "Life is what happens when you are making other plans."  How true.  And that is what makes life exciting!

2009 was a roller coaster ride for me as well as for many others. Good times and bad, happy and sad, confusion, chaos, and very little clarity. But, like the horse in my painting,  I have found there is no direction to go, except forward.  No living in the past, no going back to undo it. I can only hope to face the future with the same determination, faith and joyous abandon that this horse shows as he gallops through the snow. 

This is an oil on canvas painting, 14 x 18, standard depth. All the edges have been painted and no staples show so that it may be displayed without a frame, but would look beautiful in the frame of your choice.  This will be listed on Daily Painters and also on Art Helping Animals on Tuesday.
