Painting: Oil on Paper.
Some time ago horses used to be a part of our everyday life. The horse was always there, it was a friend, sometimes even a last friend. Adventures, discoveries, parades, festivities, great victories and miraculous salvations ... a horse was always an indisputable part of all of that… Horses are different, big, small, strong, sometimes cunning, but always fully devoted.
These days a horse is treated more as a hobby. But horses are not aware of that, thus they remain the same… and once you get on a horse - all legends come to life, everything is real!.. Turning you into a great and fearless hero.
I've been riding horses since I was twelve. I am over fifty now, and I still think that there’s nothing better than riding a horse. Watching the horse itself is a great pleasure. The most exciting stories are those with horses, best movies are those with horses. I would like to draw or paint all horse stories out there ... Unfortunately, it is not possible to cover all, but maybe at least some of them.
