|In the past, my husband and I raised registered Quarter Horses for many years. We don't have horses now and I miss them; Shows Promise pulls my heart strings...it is my favorite work. It reflects the tenderness and patience of the mare, and the colt's carefree attitude as he throws that sassy little nose in the air. Sculpting them allowed me to relive special moments with our horses. So much so in fact, that as I worked in close on the colt, I swore I felt the mare's breath on my cheek. Of course, that had to be just artistic imagination working overtime added to a lot of wishful thinking! This piece is somewhat stylized while still being realistic. I have done two patinas in this edition, gray dapple and bay.|
As I work in clay on a sculptural piece, with wonderful music on the CD player, my studio begins to turn into a sanctuary. The joy of creating overtakes every other emotion, time seems to stop, and the Lord's directive presence becomes most evident. I can only imagine the joy Jesus has in His creation that lives and breathes, sings and dances, paints and sculpts, writes music and poetry, raises children, loves the wife, loves the husband, pats the dog, hugs the cat, brings home the bacon, and stays the course. Creativity is not limited to the arts, it comes in street clothes. God is the direct author of all that has been achieved on this planet, in space, in the arts, in science and medicine, in technology; and continues to be creatively involved in every aspect of His creation. Thanks be to God for allowing us to "borrow" His talent; and to have so much fun doing so!
