My polish arabian mare, Saffy was the inspiration for this painting.
Like all horses, she is such a magical creature. Although, this is the absolute closest she will ever get to going in the water (she hates getting her hoofs wet). I’ve watched my golden retriever playing in the waves and thought why not?
This painting was the best way to show her inner spirit, her physical strength, and gentleness.
The International Artist Magazine issue 105, did a story on Bonnie Hamlin and the stages of creating of this painting.
