A Stick Horse Named Amber… imagine that.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….This wonderful horse painting is simple — and yet elegant in that simplicity. Amber, a stick horse toy, represents the innocence of youth, the fun spirit of a child playing with a favorite toy. The colors in his mane are perfect for a child’s room: blue, pink,lavender,purple, and yellow. And the pony’s eyes are full of wonder, just like the wonder of little boys and girls when they discover something new.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………This image was created with watercolor and ink, giving it a light and playful feel that makes it so perfect for children. “A Horse named Amber” is reminiscent of a day when children rode stick horses with bright and colorful horse-heads like this one, leading the way into fantasy and fun. Little cowboys and cowgirls shouted Yippee and twirled their cowboy hats with one hand while they maneuvered their stick horses down the hall and out the kitchen door with the other, only to continue riding around the yard after the “bad guys.” Good memories.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….Today, children watch television shows with redundant plots instead of playing cowboys. Left to their own imaginations, they could be the cowboys and cowgirls that become heroes. They could write their own stories. They could “save the day.”
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………The artist remembers a stick horse she named “Amber.” Together, that little girl from Texas and her stick horse had many adventures. Amber looked a lot like the horse in this painting. Imagine that…
