(FULL VIEW STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)

'Cause every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen..'
Kate Bush - Cloudbusting

(One of my all-time favorite Kate Bush songs. The pace of the song always reminded me of galloping horses. If you've never heard it, click this link to see the video: [link] )


---------------------------------------------------------------
Artist's Notes: Sometimes when it seems inspiration escapes me, I try and do something completely different. When this happens, I never really know where it's going to end up... which ultimately is quite fun for me. Like reading a novel with a surprise ending.

Usually these pieces are things that I doubt anyone else will like... and I debate on whether to share them or not. But I figure it's worth sharing the things that help me break out of artist's block. :heart:

This Picture is absolutly Gorgeous. It can represent a lot of different things, with the dark clouds and shades of gray. The horse running in the back makes it more meaningful, almost a positive outcome to a dark setting.

here I thought it was a tornado or some type of windy vortex. It is fun not knowing where the piece will take you,
me?
I never know, it is all one big experiment,
anyway, check the 'twins' out [link]
have a great Christmas

I am not sure why but when I first saw this my instinct told me to look around the corner to see if I could see Dorothy's farmhouse and the twister headed her way. I love the way that a great piece can take you other places in your mind instantly. I just love this. I think you have an incredible gift! Simply amazing. I hope you have artistic blocks often!
