How beautiful your paintings are! I'm very interested in your
| "It has long been my intention
to incorporate as many as possible of the numerous breeds of horses in
my pictures, especially since I love them all! For ages I wanted to paint
an Arab Stallion, by so doing expressing their exquisite grace aand beauty
of movement. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to use Hadeir as
a model. He was a National Champion and he simply floated around before
me with total ease and economy of effort - his beautiful paces being so
natural to him, especially his trot.
I decided that he should be painted thus and chose the moment of suspension to express lightness. Due to his glorious rich chestnut setting I felt that an autumn setting would show him off to graetest effect. I found a wonderful old chestnut tree in one of the paddocks and used that in the background. This is a simple painting but I hope you find it effective.".
