"Stretch," 42" x 16", acrylic on gallery stretched canvas, thoroughbred painting. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
This is NOT a traditional portrait by any means. But I didn't intend that.
Instead I wanted an image that represented the breed, the beauty inherant in that full out stride, the tenderness seen in the reach for a peppermint, the green of reflected sunlight off Kentucky bluegrass.
This painting is more about the summation of a lifetimes' accumulated equine memories, and less about a specific horse or moment in time.
Despite it's scale, it retains a contemplative quality that encourages you to linger as you travel down that path of memory.
