Spirit of Horse Inspirations - Kim McElroy

Distant Pastel Painting by Kim McElroy

I have always loved horse’s eyes. This series, which I called “The Expression Series”, depicted a range of emotions visible in the eyes of horses. The title of this painting has two meanings, both conveying where the horses’s eye is focusing as well as how they are feeling. “Distant” describes where the horse is looking, but therefore also his focus, presence and attention are distant from the viewer.
