On The Wind-Horse

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The host, Skappy, provided the photos.

I had to paint this beautiful horse. It made me think that her spirit was running on the wind, inspiring her to try to keep up .

When I first started on this one, I was very hesitant... not knowing which direction to take it. One color suggested the next color. So I wound up with this. It was so unplanned, it's like looking at someone else's work. I kinda like it.

Thanks for looking!

Proverbs 3: 5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

This beautiful rose was painted by the very gifted artist, Liz Holm! It is her gift to me in my moleskin as part of The Flying Moleskin project.

To Liz: I absolutely love it, Liz! I have personally always found roses to be nearly impossible to paint, so this great gift from you is amazing!

I will cherish it!


  1. Beautiful work Dean!! I love that. :)

  2. Oh Deano.... you must do more horses! You paint these majestic beast magnificently!

  3. I more than kinda like it, Dean. Her mane is beautiful and I am reminded of that old song "Wildfire," for some reason.

  4. Tout comme le vent qui emporte la crinière de ce cheval majestueux votre ressenti vous a emporté et vous a permis de peindre avec talent cet animal puissant. Les chevaux me procurent beaucoup de bonheur. la couleur de leur robe est toujours belle et celle que vous avez peinte est lumineuse.
    Très belle peinture. Gros bisous.

  5. Beautiful! I feel she has become one with the nature here with the harmonious blend of similar colors..

  6. Love what you did with that beautiful horse!

  7. Sometimes it's refreshing to go where the wind takes you.

    Very nice!
