Its a Beautiful thing. Oneness and unity. Harmony between two living beings.
Grace, elegance, poetry. Communication between two. Its an art.
Capturing our imaginations.
Just a girl and just a horse, but together – they create Art.
The girl isn’t painting, sculpting, singing or dancing. But riding and horsemanship can be an art form.
Whatever avenue our art takes, it always requires a sense of harmony and flow.
It never ‘works’ if its stiff, stilted, tense or tight.
We must practice our skills, relentlessly, until… they become ‘automatic.’
(Until its just like getting into the car to drive.)
Painting, dancing, horse riding, photography, being a musician, or a chef… they all require that feeling of harmony and partnership with the other ‘entity’ involved.
Those entities might be a person, a paint brush, ballet slippers, a horse, camera, piano, fire or a knife.
They are our Partners in our art.
So no, the girl, isn’t painting or dancing.
But we do certainly feel the unity between the two of them.
Their partnership, is clearly made known – to us.
This bond and unity between two unlikely creatures.
Both for different reasons. The horse, for her own special reasons. And the girl, hers as well.
Art comes to us in so many Different forms.
Maybe I had previously years ago thought, that “Art” was always meant to be X. Only X. That was all.
I was told it was so. Maybe you were too.
I see differently now.
A butterfly dancing in the wind is as beautiful as a ballerina. The random swirls of tree reflections in the lake, as momentous as a Monet. Rothko is just as magnificent as Renoir.
The sleek coat with its rich caramel and burnt sienna colors contrasting vibrantly against the midnight mane and tail. Delightful.
Jodi’s cake icing… a delicious creative form of art.
I saw in it a wild and free Jackson Pollock-ish approach. I liked it.
I see too how art can be even more intangible.
It is, quite an art form to create enthusiasm, inspiration, hope, in others – regardless of the media. No matter in which form, it is accomplished.
That is Art.
A new riding coach, substituting the day I watched the lesson – She, was an Art Master!
This coach was absolutely brilliant at what she did.
Creating enthusiasm and inspiration and confidence.
A huge, heartfelt Thank you to Page.
Art. It is a language.
It is communicating and expressing those things that have been found beautiful in the eyes and heart of the artist – with others.
All, in the hopes of letting others see that same beauty.
To Give others the same experience of magic and wonder and sense of Possibilities that exist.
So whether you were born to ride, or have a passion to paint, sing, sew, cook, dance, or teach –
WE are ‘Gift Givers.’
