Not an equestrian, there was a period in the early 1980’s when I was obsessed with horses. I introduced them into not only my drawings but my paintings as well. There innate strength and command coupled with a sense of calm and serenity simply fascinated me. But I almost always kept the figure present as a companion. What I enjoy about these drawings is their appears to be natural impulsiveness and transparency about them, which is something still struggle with in my paintings which tend to be technically much more opaque and less spontaneous.
