THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The white horse bounding and jumping in the Courageous painting is free and powerful, his large hooves lifting high off of the ground to show his true control over every part of himself. Courage takes a sense of care freeness and willpower, and that is precisely what this horse's stance conveys. The white horse has always been symbolic of an abundance of wisdom and honor, and when one is true to oneself, those are the sorts of values that they achieve. It does indeed take courage to live freely and without apology, and the powerful painting here shows that.
