There is a vision of the most beautiful life a horse could dream of. There is a human dreaming this vision, one who is observing; and one who has been observed.
It is that perfect day, the right time of year, the fertile soil and mild climate has led to peaceful grassy fields with plenty of sunshine and more than enough nourishment to give every belly in the herd a full, satisfied feeling.
On one side, of a weathered horse jawbone I have painted 5 horses, part of a herd of horses I have been closest to over the past 31 years, who have now passed on. It is for them and countless others I worked hard and shared so much love in order to experience as close to heaven on earth for us both as I can imagine.
On the other side, Patrik, a partner of mine for 10 years walks up, welcoming the viewer, his friend, into this gentle place. The love we shared never is lost or forgotten, it is what I carry forth in each moment. We are beings who have experienced such love.
From feeling to painting to walking on the land, talking with all sorts of kin under shared skies, I am working to make tangible this heaven on earth for horses and humans. I do see that heaven on earth is achievable today for us all. When we value kindness over fear and act from that, we find ourselves leading the way into the new world.
