I love horses. They are symbolic of spirit and freedom to me. Too bad I never took up riding.
Since I am in my 'black animal' period, I was attracted to this black horse. Usually I do not use black in my paintings, unless I mix colors from the painting to make a black. But it has been fun using a very flowing black paint and mixing in reflective color for highlights.
Wonderful photo taken by Shawn Parker.
