A professional is someone who makes something very difficult, look very easy.

The title for this one FOOT LOOSE, describes the position of the horse's feet. When this was viewed by a well known equestrian rider, he informed me, that I had the legs messed up. I asked why, and he said the front legs and the back legs are doing TOTALLY different action. To which I informed him, that the photo I took of this young rider, happened at the exact moment someone shot off a gun...thus the horse, who had been quietly walking, suddenly lurched forward, to gallop off at a high speed! So, guess this guy really understood horses...and thus the reason for the title! This piece took about 20 years to be created.
Had the photo reference since the early '80s...I just never "felt" what it wanted to be!

Now, it just seems so simple!

Basically, working all the activity of the horse and rider against the simple "blurr" of the background.

If I had more detail it would have "stopped" the movement of the horse and rider.
