Artist's Description

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.
Louise :-)

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.
