A Horseman

I think that if I become a horseman,
I shall be a man on wings.

Addictions…

#MyCoffeeAddictionAddictions may come.
Addictions may go.
Beyond the wanting,
Mornings when it’s hard to rise,
Wild horses drag me from the bed.
Beyond the waiting.
I thank God for the sun.
And a blessed cup of joe.

The Box Gallery – Now Open!

Pictures of the wall in my office (aka The Box) at my day job (the one that pays the bills) on which hangs my artwork. 

They are a great conversation starter and it does my heart good to have reminders of my passions and creative side.  I also believe that my right brain pursuits make me better at the left brain activities that seem to occupy most of my day.

Are you a left brain or right brain person?

Shadow Magic - InspirationThis is the photograph that became the inspiration for this painting.  It was taken outside the arena at my daughter’s last horse show. I love the simplicity of the shadow outline of a rider on horseback.  I gave it a twist with a colorful background in the painting above.

Thanks for stopping by! ~M

Worked on this design over the past weekend. This winged horse design represents a rising of hope and how the light of the sun can chase away the dark and renew that hope within us. I am not sure if it is finished but wanted to post it anyway.  What are your thoughts?
