This is a painting I did for the large group exhibition we have on at the gallery at the moment.  I was aiming not so much for a serious depiction of a horse as something about the symbolic power and grace of the animal.  I was also after a bit of a surreal feeling.  You can see the whole catalogue of wonderful equine-themed artworks here: http://hillierskusegallery.com/

This is a bit of a multi-purpose work, exploring two subjects that are deeply fascinating to me – the sky and the sea. I was trying to capture an unusual pearly light that you sometimes see at dawn, and I think I’ve got at least part of the way there. I’ve called the painting ‘Sea of Dreams’ because it looks a bit surreal to me.
