All the little horses

When I was a girl, I was in love with horses. I grew up in Newark, NJ where the only horses I ever saw were the occasional police horse, or maybe an old tired freckled grey pulling a fruit cart. It didn’t matter. I dreamed and drew horses over and over again. When I went to college, I chose Boise State, in Idaho, and finally found myself in horse country. And as soon as I could, I became a horse owner. I exulted in the ability to be near these amazing creatures, and of course, I continued to draw them. There are some young girls in my family who are also growing up horse crazy. Inspired by them, I am painting horses.

Here we have a trio of horses, they look like they were startled by a thunder clap.

This painting came down fast and dirty, it reminds me a lot of Frederic Remington’s depictions of mustang herds.

  1. Dear Mimi, when I was growing up, my granddad bought two horses that Manor Bakery was retiring from their delivery carts. We named one Maude and one Memphis. My little brother and I tried to ride them, but the horses, free now, of the reins that ordered them to go down the city streets pulling the cart, always trotted up to the hedgerow trees, went under them and my brother and I had to slide off for fear of the thorns. I’ve admired horses every since.

    Thanks so much for coming to my blog yesterday/today and leaving a comment. I’m glad you’ve been able to connect with it again. Take care. Peace.

  2. Mimi, your work is stunning! You left a comment on my blog about receiving my postcard from the swap and I’m so glad that you let me know, and that you liked it! It’s the first I’m hearing about any of my post cards “landing”!
