I created this painting after seeing two older horses that spent a lot of time together, Esther and Tank. Tank was in his 30’s, quite slow, elderly and a bit blind, and Esther in her 20’s.
But horses are always in relationship, always companionable - I think horses teach us more about family than anyone. Esther would herd Tank in and out of the stable morning and at night, always keeping a close watch. I was so taken by their innate loyalty and affection I immediately went into the studio while their energies were fresh in my heart and created this piece. It is one of my personal favorites.
