Similar feelings created this work as that of “Unbridled” but the horse has picked up more confidence and strength which is obvious in his eyes. The clouds have officially opened up … the dove is soaring down to remind and to symbolize that after all my years of pain . . . the Love and blessings from above still are really true and everlasting. Our stallion “Zeus” and his striking spirit was the perfect model to express my inner feeling that something is going to happen . . . is happening . . . something even better is going to happen and I’m ready to gallop toward it.
Without something to Love...Love has no meaning.
This is my first significant piece I completed after my accident. To me it is a prime reflection of that point in time. The dark shadows in the stable reflect the blackness of my trauma. The horse felt so much like myself. Although his darkened world in his stall, he seeks for the light and looks toward the future. Although in a weakened state, I innocently looked toward the future with courage expecting to rebound and recover. Little did I realize what lay ahead.
