Horse Spirit

Horse Spirit
Horse Spirit, 36 x 36, oil on linen

In Olden Days, American Indians would record events in pictographs. These could be paintings on cave walls, robes, ledgers, tipis or shields.

The events would be legends or stories or personal accounts. When the painting told a story of a man own feats the pictograph would recall the Power that helped the man in a particular circumstance and ask that all who heard his story be blessed similarly by the Power.

This Plains Indian  holds a shield telling of a horse raid.

Flies Like the Wind by K Henderson

Flies Like the Wind, 36 x 36, oil on canvas

I’m pleased to have recently sold this painting. Although I have enjoyed painting horses throughout my career I suspect that this will be my final equestrian painting.

Flies Like the Wind depicts a Plains Indian holding a shield with images of horses. The background also has horses similar to ones found in ledger drawings or story robes.
