I've been painting horses for several years and writing down the messages I got from them. I'm creating a card deck that has the horses and their messages. Yesterday, I posted the project on Kickstarter, which is a funding platform. Help me get this deck printed and get a daily dose of horse wisdom. #horsesofus #horses #horseriding #equine #tarot

There's nothing better than seeing your art in someone else's home. This portrait of Stephanie's incredible Lipizzan mare Bravura made my heart sing. The coolest part is that Bravura is right outside Stephanie's window at her farm.
Horses permeate our souls and when I can capture the essence of a horse, I feel like my soul's purpose of bringing light to these beings shines brighter.

Meet Harry

Before I started the artwork of Harry, I did a meditation with him. Right off the bat, I wrote down spiritual, rays, and golden boy. I asked him about these words and I saw a scene with him bathed in a beautiful golden light. I asked him to give me more information and he told me that he was a borderlands horse. I didn’t know what that meant, so I asked him. He said that he had been to the area of overlap between our physical and non-physical world. He said that he felt very uncertain there.

In my mind’s eye, I saw him in three different worlds. One is the spiritual realm, which comes down from the heavens and showers him with rays of light through the colors of purple and blue. He feels those two colors represent his soul. Purple is the introspective color that allows getting in touch with deeper thoughts. Blue is the helper, the rescuer, the friend that pulls out all the stops for you. Harry has strong feelings about the color blue. He feels this color represents is horse guardian owner, Amy.

The strip of transition between the purples and the blues is the world of the unknown (ie the borderlands). He feels he has traveled to that world but wants to stay in the physical world for longer. He has more to teach. The golden world is how he feels now. To him the golden world is idyllic and pastoral.

I asked him if he had a message and he said he did. Here is what I got:

I am here as a teacher and student. I want to glow golden in my own way. Sometimes as I breath, I feel lighter and lighter. I carried many burdens before but I feel them leaving me. I feel loved.

Meet Maestoso Fadra: His owner, Michelle, told me about her journey with him. I loved it when she said, “He’s like that grouchy old uncle that everybody has but he’s yours so that’s okay.” https://www.horsesofus.com/meet-maestoso-fadra/

The Seen in the Hidden Self
I had the pleasure of creating this artwork and chatting with June about her lovely horse Roo. I don’t know about you but I love finding out how certain horses (or other animals) ended up in our lives. There is always a special spark when a particular horse is ‘the one’.

June told me about expanding her search for a new partner out of state and how when she saw his delightful face on Facebook, she knew she needed to go meet him in person. Fast forward to now and June got her bronze medal in dressage on him. Her voice just fills with love when she talks about him.

But wait…there’s so much more! Go here: https://horsesofus.com/the-seen-in-the-hidden-self

A Horse of a Tribal Color

Meet the Lipizzan mare Alea. As I looked at Alea’s photos and asked her what she wanted to share with the world, I got a very concrete feeling of warrior princess! I felt the bold tribal colors fit her. I loved using the flame-like colors around her muzzle and neck to express the fire of her soul. She is an engaged horse and feels life deeply.

The background of the painting works with her soul message. When a storm comes in, Alea knows she can weather anything. The phrase, ‘Still waters run deep’ played in my mind as I imaged the scene with her.

Alea’s message to you is: Find your center and know it well. It will serve you in life.

Here’s what Alea’s owner, Lori, said about her:

“She used to have lots of anxiety. In the crossties, I barely spoke to her verbally but I would place my hand on her neck or rub her withers and stand there calmly. I would look at the ground and breathe. She would slowly calm down. She’s much better now and we’ve developed a solid relationship.”
