Oils on canvas board 16″ × 20″ 2009
Commission – Original SOLD
The unicorn holds many secrets:
the secrets of jungles and moonlight;
the secrets that lie hidden at the roots of trees
and conceal themselves in coral labyrinths
beneath the ocean.
I look deep into its amber eyes
and see my own reflection,
but altered in line and light,
as if in a dream.
(Words by Josephine Bradley)
Here it is at last, the commissioned work for Trudi. Her two
lovely Irish Connemara ponies Abbey & Shannon painted as
unicorns. This was Trudi’s wish.
The work was a combination of two photos taken by Trudi,
who we all know is a very talented photographer. The background is Kirks Reservoir Park in Ballarat, Victoria
& was a perfect setting for these gorgeous girls.
Their horns were created from a lovely spiral shell which
was a gift to me recently, it was just perfect for reference.
I’ve been searching for a suitable poem to go with this
painting & finally found one.
Thank you so much Trudi, I hope the painting brings you
much enjoyment & a little bit of magic. I’m honoured.
Trudi has also requested me to make this available as prints or cards, where any proceeds will be donated to Project Hope for the welfare of horses, which I am very happy to do so.
