FRIESIAN  &  BAROQUE  HORSES

                                              God held a handful of ash,

                                  blew into it saying, "Let it be the purest of creatures."

                                            Out of His hand galloped the black horse.

 Baroque Friesian stallion "THE WIZZARD" is the inspiration for some of these works.

                 

FOR THE ONES LEFT BEHIND (Bushfire Series #4.) - watercolour & gouache on Yupo paper 5" x 7" 2020.

 ORIGINAL NOT AVAILABLE. My tribute to the animals lost in the Australian Bushfires in 2019-2020, in particular the Koalas and horses. Hundreds of Koalas  were lost in the Lake Cathie area fires nearby and I was inspired to paint this piece one hot summer's day during the drought, heat and fires that seemed to go  on for ever, with no rain in sight. The red Fire Moon in the evening was a sign of what was to follow, and the angry red Sun seemed to be a daily  appearance    with an ominous presence. Both were terrifying and beautiful.

                  

SHE WHO RUNS WITH FIRE (Bushfire Series #1.) - watercolour & gouache on Yupo paper 5" x 7" 2019.

 ORIGINAL NOT AVAILABLE. During the Australian summer in 2019-2020 we were impacted by the Bushfires that reached our village and we had thick smoke,  black ash, leaves and embers on our property for months as well as searing heat and drought. The angry red Sun and red Fire Moon inspired me to paint  several pieces at this time.  Fires surrounded our valley for a long, difficult Summer and we evacuated some of our equipment and animals to safety for a few weeks.
