had taken photos of many of these carved and painted horses from various carousels at parks and carnivals. My attempt to do something interesting with them.

“A few verses from the Rolling Stones song WILD HORSES

Childhood living is easy to do
The things
you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I cant let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

    Love this! You´d send it to the Music Inspired Art Group (MIA) ; there´s this popular song by Gino Vanelli with the same name.

  • thanks Danilo, you know I don’t know that song by Gino but I was thinking of that Rolling Stones song Wild Horses when I did this.

    Hi Larry…..
    This idea has been following me for a time. I have been doing selections of horses of this type… I simply find that what you wished to express… you just have got it..with a dinamism and magic that I cherish so much.
    Lover of clouds… and melting sun…..mmmm..they are so alive and brave!!!!

  • Rosa, please go ahead and do your piece on the horses, I would love to see it, I’m sure it would be sensational. Thank you for commenting.
