Equine Art White Horse in the Moonlight

White Arabian Horse
Dancing in the Moonlight
Oil on cavas
16 x 20

I apologize that recently my posts have been few and far between.  Commissioned works, both human and animal,  have been keeping me busy and distracting me a bit from my normal routine.  Painting the loved ones of others is hard work and time consuming but also rewarding.   Sometimes the paintings bring smiles, but just as often there are tears.  That used to make me feel uncomfortable, but over the years I have learned to appreciate those tears. because they mean the work has touched someone's heart.

So, every now and then it helps to take a break from all that seriousness.  White horses have always been one of my favorite subjects.  I love their beauty and energy and the freedom I feel while painting them. This one was done in a more Impressionistic style than much of my work,  especially those commissions where an exact likeness is so important.  Painting this moonlight dance was like painting a lovely dream,  still challenging, but an expression from my own spirit.   Now, I must get back to the commissions. Always a joy, but more difficult and tiring.

Dancing in the Moonlight was done on studio wrapped canvas, 16 x 20,  standard depth - about .75 inch deep.  All the edges have been painted and no staples show, so that it may be hung without a frame or in the frame of your choice.

This and other artwork may be purchased through my Zibbet Shop,  Art By Della Burgus.  You might want to bookmark my shop as more work will be added periodically.

Have a good day, and I would encourage you to find some time to play or at least dream today, especially if you work very hard, or are dealing with some serious "stuff" in  your life.  It always helps me.
