When all my friends were plastering their bedroom walls with posters of their favorite bands, I was filling mine with pictures of horses. There used to be a magazine called Horse of Course which featured an equine centerfold in each issue. I carefully removed my favorites, and one entire wall was laid out in a very precise grid of photos, so each horse was showcased in all its glory. As that horse-crazy girl grew up she drew hundreds of horse pictures, so painting horses was almost a given!
