I love to paint horses in motion. I have worked around them so much that the graceful and powerful forms just sank into my artwork, absorbed, a perfect subject. This painting is inspired by my high regard of cave paintings and oriental artwork. By the way, the lines in the manes and tails are actually gold - I could not get that to show up in a photograph. Be prepared if you buy it - The colors are much brighter in person and it is a rather large watercolor.
Elizabeth Sullivan has been drawing and painting since childhood. She grew up around horses, and worked on an Arabian horse ranch in Texas. Horses are a main subject of Elizabeth’s art and have always been a part of her life. “I like to paint graceful and powerful motion,” she says, “and horses provide a beautiful subject. The nature of watercolors is water and water flows. It is a perfect medium to paint flowing motion. I paint in layers using transparent colors to increase vibrancy of color.” Birds, fish and other wildlife also appear in her art, as well as people and parts of their lives. She started doing art shows in 2001, and plans to continue, as well as produce works for galleries. Her unique and original style caught the eye of several manufacturers and has now been licensed to companies who have produced area rugs, posters, coasters and greeting cards with her art. Her murals, on barns in Texas and Missouri, have been published in books. Several galleries carry her work.
