The Art of Donna B

"These paintings are my story. Large-scale, lyrical, passionate. Classic equines, modern terms, power and pleasure. There is more to a horse than just a “picture” of him; there is a mythology, a symbolism; an ancient connection we can trace, all of which expresses for us a deep aliveness when we see him. An intimacy with sheer presence. Horses are big energy; And that is what I paint."
