Running free, a palomino quarter horse canters through a dreamy veil of subtle colors. This painting expresses the beauty of horses and the emotions and memories we carry about them. As a child, I dreamed of golden horses and drew them endlessly, so for me this painting is about the happy dreams of a young girl, full of anticipation for what her future might hold. For you, the memories may be of growing up on a ranch, your love for your own horse, or simply an appreciation for beautiful animals. This Golden Girl may inspire you to run along a beach, feel free to dance in the light, or just be who you are. This is the wonderful power of paintings, to rekindle happy memories and emotions in all of us!
