Paintings of horses

The Kentucky Derby is over, and Rich Strike is the winner.

I have always liked horses. I rode several when I was young, always thinking I would fall off but never did. It was awesome feeling the muscles of the horse rippling during a trot. Just the memory makes me smile.

Horses have the largest eyes of land mammals. The eyes are located on the sides of their head, giving them a 360 degree view.

Today, I am going to showcase some paintings of horses.

This last painting by Marion Rose is my favorite. It’s incredible! Just beautiful!

No doubt about it, horses are magnificent beasts.

I wish I had the talent to draw and paint like these artists.

    I too have fond memories of riding horses. I remember the ride at Makaha which is in the country. The ride was quite long and included going through a river. It is still a vivid memory after thirty years.

    I was never a big fan of horse artwork unless it were those primitive cave paintings, but that last one here is stunning! Good topic, Gigi πŸ™‚

    The muscular structure of horses makes them so difficult to draw. That, and the short hair, which has sheen and texture. These are lovely examples.

    Beautiful! I miss horses, the only I see very rarely are police horses.
    No idea if these days I would hop on again, though. IΒ΄m small and often got the ponies, wild things that, I kissed the earth often πŸ˜‰

    I like horses. I did volunteer work at an equine therapy place in FL for a few years pre-COVID. It really was quite an amazing program of physical therapy exercises done as children rode the horses around the ring. Don is really allergic to them so I don’t know that I will go back to that next year.
