GYPSY FIRE - pastel 50cm x 70cm 2010


Where poppies bloom in full day sun

Buds reaching for the light

A jet black Gypsy horse does run

With mane and tail of white

The flowers cast their scarlet hue

His black coat red with fire

He runs beneath the sky so blue

A proudly muscled sire

Through ages past his breed long gone

Just one horse left behind

And in his blood, his race lives on

The last one of his kind (Text by Louise Green 2011)

This poem is based on an ancient breed of horse that once existed in Tartary, known as the Karobolo breed. These horses had a black coat, white mane and tail and often white leg markings. I have combined the colouring of this horse with an imaginary horse of my dreams as a child, bringing him to life as a special Gypsy horse.

TINA'S MEADOW - pastel 70cm x 100cm 2011 Commission - SOLD


A horse as golden as the morn

trots proudly into sight

Where bluebells greet the pastel dawn

all dancing in the light

Past the old deserted shack

that stands so long forgotten

A cabin on the lonely track

the boards and roof now rotten

A Gypsy mare and foal stand by

the little bay Welsh mare

Tall eucalyptus trees do sigh -

leaves fall without a care

A noble Friesian, black as night

here guards his precious herd

His piebald colt with colours bright

like morning's magpie bird

In Tina's meadow, full of grace

and beauty - wild and proud

A hidden, sheltered, secret place

It's magic like a shroud (Text by Louise Green 2011)

This commission was a special request from my framer - combining the owners' bay Welsh mare & a few other elements such as an old hut, a palomino horse, along with 2 or 3 other horses of my choice and a field of blue flowers, set against an early morning backdrop.

GYPSY DREAMS - pastel 50cm x 70cm

The background for this painting is from a photo taken on our farm in the early morning mist as the sun casts her golden beams of light through the ghostly eucalyptus trees. Being a fan of the "Silver Brumby" books by Elyne Mitchell since I was a child, I wanted to paint a silver Gypsy Cob with this background - a magnificent ivory silver stallion appearing out of the mist, enveloped in a soft aura of early morning sunlight.

ORIGINAL NOT AVAILABLE. Collection of the artist.


Through dawn's soft mist

the early light

brings golden glowing beams

A vision forms

of holy might,

A horse of silver dreams

So softly does he track the earth

'cross morning's dew drenched grass

And in his wake, the faerie lights

shine - where his hooves do pass

A piercing ray

breaks through the trees,

shaped like a glowing horn,

springs from his noble forehead proud -

white Gypsy horse,

or mystic Unicorn? (Text by Louise Green 2010)
