Horses personify the sacred dance of connectedness”

~ Kim McElroy


This painting was inspired an experience I had while visiting Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary.  At RTF the horses live in natural herds.  As I watched, this stallion began courting a mare.  It was such an honor for them to feel comfortable enough with me present, to exhibit their natural behaviors, and such a rare and beautiful moment to witness their miraculous life in harmony far from the cruel roundups.  The pastel drawing is created on semi-transparent vellum representing their elusive spirits, overlaying handmade paper embedded with real ferns and flowers representing their wild nature.

Art is framed in shadowbox with Owl and pheasant feathers and some of our own horse’s hair.
