11″ x 15.5″ original watercolor painting on watercolor paper.
This painting was inspired by the cool confidence of a horse and rider sailing over a course of fences. I was blown away by the ease with which the mare glided over the fences. Having ridden a few horses over a few small obstacles, I admire with greater appreciating, the riders skill at balancing in the stirrups.
Is this really the best way to fly? I admit that I love horseback riding and wish I could ride a course such as this. However, I am looking towards a future where I fly a lot farther – and a lot higher. This future, that I know is coming, will also have no end to it. I am looking toward eternity with God in heaven. Imagine the horseback rides we can enjoy there!
