Horse Power

I so enjoyed my walk around this building. It was wonderful to see the energy in the lines and architecture of the building and then the natural and powerful energy in this magnificent statue of a horse.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

    As a X rodeo rider I suspect you wanted to jump on (ooops your secret is out) .

    There is a quality of spacious intimacy with this Don, just like ‘brown eyed twigs’. It doesn’t loom over but rather bends to embrace..Gracious grandeur, evoking a grunt. Elegant vs opulent. Very tight, a finished image. Foreknowledge vs afterthought. Am going out on a limb (put the saw away Don) to say. Had you not known how to sketch and draw, Not in a million life times would you have seen this. You would have simply walk through not into it like you have. Good shtufffs, you.

    I really like the way you have captured the black and white colors with just a hint of bronze to accentuate the innate strength of this well-sculpted specimen. I have a natural affinity for horses as I have a Mustang of the gas-powered variety that serves as my own personal sanctuary when traveling back and forth on the daily commute 😉 Thanks for sharing, Don!


  10. This is stunning, Don!
