Artist Statement

“The horse symbolizes power, freedom and courage. I have admired the beauty and spirit of every horse I have ever had the privilege to meet, from backyard ponies to famed race horses and Olympiads. There is no end to the breathtaking images that have filled my mind through my life-long love of the horse and my current ownership of these massive yet delicate beasts. My approach is to combine my contemporary style, complimenting the mood of the subject through the choice of color, texture, or the lack thereof. I get excited when I see a painting evolve from the memory that sunk my heart and had to be portrayed. I hope you enjoy my documentary of the great horse through my equine art.”  – Susan Sommer
