“Painting is for me, a search for beauty. I am especially intrigued by the anatomical power and vitality of horses. Their sheer intensity can be seen through the rendering of light as it reflects from a sweat drenched coat or the amber gaze of a horse at day break. Conveying the vibrations of nature is my goal, and it is my hope that the viewer’s alliance with the painting brings to art its truest beauty.”- Ann Goble
