I created this image from a photo I took of a horse at dawn. We had moved from Victoria, Australia, to New South Wales and were staying with a friend. I wandered out around 5.30 one morning to see the horse standing in the early morning mist, hazy and eerie looking, so quickly took a photo to capture the image.
This digital art reminds me of being in a state of suspension, waiting for inspiration to strike, outlasting the emotional pressure of waiting for creativity to pop up its head, and representing the mystery of creative inspiration when it does arrive after crossing a desert of waiting, hoping and fearing.
I looked at the final image and immediately though of America’s “A Horse with No Name”. What else?
