When I’ve received the picture of Tailor, I’ve felt chills. I was hit by his so intense and deep look. This horse must have been very strong, magnetic, charismatic & so kind! I couldn’t wait to do his portrait.
When I was in front of my easel with the picture reference of Taylor close to me & with my pencil dancing on the paper, I was so concentrated that I felt a connection with him. That kind who let me feel a bit with him, it was a feeling of peace.
If I tell you this now it’s because it’s not the first time it happens to me these last months. I created 3 portraits of passed away horses and I felt the same peaces and strong energy each time that let me feel a huge sensation of love.
I know that for the owners it can be a hard time, for me, I created these portraits in a joy that I can’t describe & I imagine that the painting hold and keep this energy.

DIVE INTO A PAINTING
Talking about my paintings has used to be a so much hard exercise for me during years because I didn’t really know me, not at all actually. I found out that the more I was aware of what I was, the more I could talk about my art. And the more I talk about my art, the more I know me.
These are my interpretations of the moment of one of my paintings. You could have yours and it would be very fine, this is the magic of art. It actually allows our own feelings, our vision of life to express through the mirror of the art. Follow your heart and it’ll tell you your truth.
