When I was a little child I was often ill. While my friends played outside, I was forced to stay indoors. I spent my time drawing. Like most boys, I enjoyed drawing cowboys and Indians and various kinds of warriors and heroes. But, there was one thing that always caused me a headache - a horse! I simply could not draw horses. Every time I drew one it looked more like a distant cousin of the giraffe then a proper horse. This was a long-term frustration until, much later, I made a conscious decision to take up the challenge and finally learn to draw one.
A horse is truly a magnificent animal, so powerful and so gracious at the same time. Every time I come across a horse, while walking through the fields, I look at it and I think: “How beautiful, how complex, how challenging. I have to go back to the drawing table and keep on practicing”.
