Year of the Horse :: L’an du cheval

“If you love life you also love the past, because it is the present as it has survived in memory.” 
— Marguerite Yourcenar

One of my sketching friends asked me to paint a horse for the Chinese New Year that is coming up, in which 2014 is the Year of the Horse. It is still -20°C outside, and last night it snowed and the snowflakes were light and airy as the wind caught them this morning, twirling and dancing before my eyes. It was a magical moment -)

Une de mes amies aquarellistes m’a demandée de peindre des chevaux pour la nouvelle année chinoise! Elle va faire une compilation de plusieurs peintures car l’Année du cheval approche à grands pas. Il fait toujours -20°C dehors et il a neigé hier soir. Ce matin, un très beau spectacle m’attendait car le vent levait les flocons de neige, les faisait danser et les laissait tomber tout alentour. C’était magique -)

Paper: Handbook Journal
Colours: French Ultramarine, Indian Red and Raw Sienna
