This painting represents my interpretation of the Horse Goddess Epona, a blending of the feminine figure within what appears to be a masculine horse, the woman's silhouette in black combined with the white of the horse, yin & yang.
Her hand & hair flow into the mane like tree roots, she is part of the earth, yet also the air - mythical, magical, but also a part of Mother Nature. Look on top of the mountain - for the snowline is in the shape of a horse lying on its side.
My inspiration for this painting was my love of coloured horses combined with my love of fantasy. One of my own blue-eyed Paint Horses was the idea for this work. No two Paint Horses are alike, each has its own individual colour & pattern, in Paint Horse terms this horse
would be known as a "splash overo" where the colour looks like it is poured over the horse. Collection of the artist.
Won a Highly Commended & People's Choice Awards in Art shows. Original not available - collection of the artist.
