This horse is very special to me. His racing name is Flamingo Kid. He was one of the horses I’ve been blessed to work with and I loved him so very much. We were best mates. To my total heartbreak, his owners sent him to China to race where I felt that he would do no good…..and…he didn’t do well at all. For my boss he was winning races in Sydney and doing very well.
He’s been gone a couple of years and I still miss him. Painting his face made me remember all the wonderful times we had together. In this photo he was out in a paddock and when he saw me he came walking up the hill to get his regular cuddle. He wouldn’t let any other horse near me and would chase them away. He was so beautiful and such a great friend to me. I decided to share the love I have for this horse in this painting and placed myself next to him.
My inspiration for this painting is obvious but the reason I am sharing it with my collectors is because I know those who buy my work love horses as much as I do and deserve a painting filled with great love and genuine emotion and connection.
