The wild horses of Sable Island are the subject of my newest series of art projects. I haven’t picked up charcoal and sepia to create compositions and drawings in over 27 years. The last drawing I did was a sketch when I was 16ish of an unfinished doodle from Leonardo de Vinci.
All my artwork from the time I was a child up through adulthood I had to destroy due to mold contamination. It’s time for me to make some new pieces to grace our home.
Horses have always held a special place in my heart and I’ve always felt particularly close to them in a way I could never express with words…so I won’t try.
Anyway, after searching for photos of wild horses, I fell in love with Robert M. Dutesco’s photographs of the wild horses of Sable Island. I will be searching for other photographs also, but so far I’ve found my favorite and will be working on them throughout the winter months.Stop by our farm site Luna Hill Heritage Farm to sign up for our CSA! www.LunaHill.org
