Heart for a Chestnut

Heart for a Chestnut


"Heart for a Chestnut" has been a milestone for me. I have always wanted to paint a horse, ever since childhood. Maybe I have this desire because of my admiration for the old masters, who perfected horses in so many ways. Or it could be that I just simply love horses, especially the Palomino because of its blonde mane and chestnut body. Adding the gold leaf to the painting took it from looking like a photograph to looking like a work of art. I love how the gold changes in different light and how it makes the painting so much more unique.
