Spirit Of The Horse: Artist Kim McElroy On #EquineArtHour This Sunday!

Full Circle

Kim McElroy’s famous paintings have struck a fantastic and mysterious vibe for over 20 years, giving us an everlasting look at a horse’s soul. From  popular greeting cards to collectibles and fine art originals and prints, she continues to show us these majestic steeds in all forms. Personally, I love her use of the elements and horses, they feel so powerful and full of energy!

Kim has been commissioned by celebrities and presidents, but she says that her most ” cherished accolades are the daily responses her work inspires in those who love it.”

Kim lives  in  Kingston, Washington, USA with her husband and many different animals on their farm. She can be contacted on her website: http://spiritofhorse.com

“Moonlight horse
Quiet around me
Breathing
Listening
Waiting
The world seems smaller
Encompassed only by the range of my senses
Which seek to catch
The distant sound.”

~ Kim McElroy

 “A strange stillness dwells in the eye of the horse…
a composure that appears to regard the world
from a measured distance…
It is a gaze from the depths of a dream.”
~ Hans~Heinrich Isenbart

“What a piece of work is a horse!
How noble in reason!
How infinite in faculty!
In form and moving how expressive and admirable!
In action how like an angel!”

And heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.”

“The eye of the beholder
reveals many mysteries
Like mirrors of infinity,
the layers of perception appear endless.”

~ Kim McElroy

The Legend

“The magic of the moon and the stars in the sky spoke to him. Let your mares run. Let them keep running into the night mist beyond the cliff and we will carry them up into the stars. They will live in our sky where man can only dream of the capture.”

~ Dawn Van Zant

The Messenger
The Messenger

I am the daughter of earth and water, and the nursling of the sky. I pass though the pores of the ocean and shores, I change, but I cannot die.”
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Windborne
Windborne

“In the purple and rose colored hills and valleys
of a cloud that rolled on forever,
shapes of horses converged and emerged…
dissipated… only to form again.”

~ Kim McElroy

Heartfelt
Heartfelt

My heart is as ancient as the sea
To ride the waves you must follow me
I patiently wait for you to feel
The depths of wisdom which I reveal

In mind and body, heart and soul
We are gifted with life and thus a role
In the unfolding quest of love and light
Be still and trust your own insight

~ Kim McElroy

“As the bow of a ship thrusts into the waves,
the horse’s breast drives forward in his gallop
surmounted by his flying mane
scattered like flung spray.”

~ Hans Heinrich Isenbart

Silent Night

“On silent wings
the owl sweeps by
in the quiet moonlit night.
A lone stallion
rears in greeting
his way of taking flight.”

~ Kim McElroy

 

Hoofbeats in Heaven

“Somewhere…somewhere in time’s own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some Paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.”

~ Stanley Harrison
