da Vinci Horse in Piaffe

Commissioned for the cover of the "United States Dressage Federation" magazine Connections, it was inspired by "The Vitruvian Man" by Leaonardo da Vinci circa 1487. This could be considered the "Canon of Proportions" for the horse performing the dressage movement piaffe. It is based on the correlations of ideal horse proportions with geometry. It exemplifies the blend of art and science during the Renaissance. 

Winning painting/illustration of the American Horse Publications Annual Awards, First Place in Illustration for "Da Vinci Horse", 2007. This print shows an anatomically accurate transparent horse and skeleton.

Don't Steal My Work.

It's happened again, so I have a very good reason to post this: 

Do NOT Steal My Work.

It you were in a store and caught thefting, you would be arrested then sentenced. If I hired a plumber, or doctor, or handy person - pretty much anyone - I would have to pay them for their services or I would suffer the consequences.

Taking my registered, copyrighted artwork without my permission is the same thing. You are taking my hard earned money out of my pocket, and I will pursue you for that.

To all of those who take the time to contact, license or purchase from me - thank you. Your integrity is greatly appreciated, as is YOUR hard earned cash.
