The Trotter

“The Trotter”

I've always had a thing about horses, so I was thrilled when I caught sight of this trotter training for harness racing in Northbridge, and got permission from the owner to watch and take photos. I drive around for hours hoping to find something so exciting, not often with as much success. Doing the painting later on was another one of those joyful experiences. I hadn't drawn horses in quite a long time, so the experience took me back to my childhood, when I used to spend countless hours blissfully drawing horses, studying their anatomy, making collages of them, and reading about how to ride. An admirer of this painting told me what he liked best was that he could feel the heat of the day.
