My Friends,

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.”

Blue Horses painted for a selfless friend and healer

  1. Gosh, Miss AM, you’re really “on it” with the posts! I’m dragging behind. Love this art! So beautiful — and healing to look/gaze at. I’ve been at the ‘Mastodon cafe’ staring at that golden animal, wondering what AM could do with that animal. Looking at today’s art, at these horses, it seems you can do whatever you darn well feel like — and dream of — drawing! My pencils and pens are downright jealous. 🙂


    • Ah, give a big warm hiddy ho to that most auspicious of mascots. These horses were done 2 years ago for a physical therapist friend who wouldn’t take money for rehabilitating my left shoulder. I’d lost movement due to sheer stupidity. For years, I loved showing off how I could still throw a ball for Rocky, the Shepherd – every morning I did this, I’d say, “AnnMarie perhaps you should stretch a little before.” Never did. And one day at 48, I woke and couldn’t lift my arm above my head… Blue horses for a working arm – not nearly enough payment…
      Thanks, Deb! And I think you have blue horses in you 🙂 Your graphics are wondrous!
      AM 🙂

      • You’re supposed to “warm up” before you exercise? I’m laughing, because I never do! And Bob always tells me I’m “gonna pull something,” and it appears you did pull your shoulder muscle, so it must be true! 🙂 I’ll bet you can throw a ball farther than I can — somehow I’ve lost my ability to send a round object on its trajectory. And horse? Huh-uh, don’t think so, Miss. Confession: Last night I tried to draw Harold (of Purple Crayon fame); my Harold was laughable, totally. A horse, I think, would be even tougher! But thanks for the encouragement, LOL. 🙂


  2. Oh my gosh, this is one of my favorite works you’ve done. I’m horse crazy. Admittedly. Still this is totally gorgeous. I’m sure your girlfriend has this in a place of honor on her wall. Awesome job.
