Finally. It's been so long since last time I completed something in color. Feels so good...

And what better way could there be than starting this year off with some horses? I secretly wish that the girl on the black one was me. You guys have no idea how much I miss horsebackriding nowadays. Been so long since last time I had the chance to ride. Being in a stable is like meditation for me.


So yeah. From me to you.
With 100% love, heart and effort.
I can't get any more personal than this.


Done in Photoshop CS5 with a cintiq12WX.

This visual is insanely good. I like the composition, concept, and detailing so much. I hope you don't mind that I pin this. Great effort paid off!

I really love the whimsy and child-like joy in this piece.

I, too, ride horses and wish I had the opportunity to do so more often.

Beautiful and touching.

I love the unique way you made the horses' faces and the graceful flow of their manes. I miss riding horses as well. The sudden movements and shouts from my Tourette's syndrome make it unsafe.

I only rode a horse once and it felt so natural, no classes, no pointers, just get on and hold on, kick him to go faster, turn their head either way to steer him (I learned from TV lol)... I really wish I could ride one again :D

I love that you made him purple, not just straight up black, very dreamlike that way..

You know what, this reminds my of a book that I read when I was little.

For one thing, I loved horses at the time. The book I read was called "My Pony" I think.

It was about a girl who wished she had a pony, but her parents didn't let her. So she would always dream about a horse of her own, an imaginary one, and it had pictures of her and this horse as they ran in the clouds, the stars, everything a dream world could have.

This particular painting reminds me of that girl, running through the clouds on her silver dream horse, with other horses running beside her. I adored that book a lot, so, In other words, this painting brings back a child memory

I'm afraid not. I do remember reading a book called "Touch the Moon" about a toy horse that "comes to life" however.
