There are two horses in my upcoming novel, Storms of Malhado, that survive the Great Storm of 1900 by climbing up the stairs of their master’s mansion and watching the deluge from a bedroom window. I’m pretty much obsessed with horses in general, and with these two fictional horses and their survival story in particular. It’s why I want to create some really big horse-themed art in my gallery this spring.
I’m happy to report that today was the first in my series of Make Room for the Horses events, and that I sold the four paintings below. I still need to sell (or put into storage) twenty five more, but things are looking up for my horses.
