Drinkers of the Wind ~ Seven Horses Soar Above the Sands

Drinkers of the Wind ~ Seven Horses Soar Above the Sands

“Oh, to be a witness of such ancient mysteries as earth and sky
To behold the spirits soaring there
All around us, elements appear in forms that speak to our souls
We have only to open our eyes to perceive their miracles
We have only to open our ears to hear their wisdom
Each moment is an invitation to remember our connection
And to honor the sentience of Nature.”

~ Kim McElroy

In my Horses in the Elements Series, I depict the natural formations of the shapes of horses revealed in forces of nature. “Drinkers of the Wind” was inspired by a cloud formation in which I felt the energy of horses expressed as a windswept storm swirling above the solid and timeless earth. “Drinkers of the Wind” is a Bedouin phrase used to describe the beautiful breed of the Arabian horse. It seemed a fitting title for these horses made of wind and water. This painting was commissioned by a member of the Kuwait royal family, and is dedicated to the spirits of the horses lost from the Bait Al Arab stud during the Gulf War.
