This original painting depicts a pale grey mare, and her brown foal, running alongside each other in perfect harmony. This is a masterclass in movement, light and shadow by one of the leading equestrian artists. The horses run on sweet green grass, with a wooden picket fence behind and the mixed greenery of trees or woodland in the background. The palette, as well as the age of the foal, suggests it is springtime and the overall mood is positive, maternal, life affirming.
