Small Mare, Big Heart (and the import@nce of good connections)

Oil on linen canvas
101cm wide x 76cm high

We may appear small, but we can, and everyone loves a winner. We only know what we know and so we set out to grow, but how to access a bit of savvy direction? It’s blooming inside but the landscape is all thick doors and high walls. These big ideas are hard to fit in small holes and connections feel thin on the ground before the success comes. Still, we have heart, try hard, and trust we’ll get there… even if we feel a little invisible at the moment. - In memory of a spectacular little mare who could (and did), in the voice of an artist in progress.
