A large Shire Horse painting set in the countryside with mountains in the background which have the sun on them.
Following a short break to Cardigan Bay I decided to paint this piece of art. The farm where I had been staying had a few shire horses and I was drawn instinctively to this proud beast. He stood there noble in the field and watched me as if he knew things beyond my grasp.
I knew I had to paint him! I have set him against my signature mountain backdrop style and feel this gives the piece even more power and presence.
This work shows stillness, calmness and mystery as we ponder on the thoughts running through this horse's mind. He is noble in the majesty of a beautiful setting and the rich colours make the artwork a key focal point in any room.
The edges of this box canvas have been painted in pale baby blue also for an extra touch of decadence.
The art is ready to hang with no need for a frame.
