This art piece was originally drawn in 2015 when Felicity was 16 years old.
This is the first doodle art piece that Felicity created. It was born from a desire to not just draw a horse, but the story behind the horse. She describes this in her bio:
“When I first started to draw, I would try and try to draw realistically, but with each piece I grew more frustrated with my art because no matter how hard I tried my art always seemed to lack anything special. I felt like I was just scratching marks on paper…
Then came the day that I discovered something amazing.
I was sitting on the couch, my beat up drawing pad resting on my knees as I a sketched out a horses head. Just as an experiment I began filling it with doodles. It was at that moment I finally understood what I wanted art to be. For the first time I began to look at the feelings behind my art. So I began to weave my memories into this horse.
Squiggly lines like the trails we walked, a birds nest that I could only see if I stood on my horse’s back, the old trees shaking in the wind, the first stars shining in the evening sky, and flowers that grew in the hay fields where we would run, my horses mighty strides lending me wings to race the wind. I worked and worked until there was before me, a piece that was so much more than just a horse.”
Printed on lustrous archival paper, this fine art print will be a treasure to hold for years to come. Its luxurious satin finish gives the art a pop that makes the blacks deep and the colors vivid.
