Prairie Horse Spirit by Lena Owens @OLena Art
"We know the horses are there in the dark
meadow because we can smell them,
can hear them breathing. ..." ~ Jack Gilbert
My main interest is to paint in oils with palette knife: landscapes, wild life or still life. .

As I produce my first horse painting I realized that I should paint horses more often. Why shouldn’t I? I used to work with horses. I drew them all the time and I know the anatomy of those beautiful creatures very well.
As Jack said, you need to hear them breathe and smell them to know that a horse is present. But in order to paint them, I say, it’s far more than hearing and smelling and even seeing them - it takes keen observation and passion.
This painting, I created using a palette knife, oil paint and lots of layering and strokes filled with love on a canvas. Thick paint layers were applied to create rich impasto texture. Would you like to see me paint more similar palette knife artwork? Contact me! I'm open for art commissions.
