The Shaggy Pony

The Shaggy Pony 18″ x 18″ gallery wrapped canvas
$1200.00
This pony reminds me of Ireland…they have lots of beautiful, shaggy ponies…It inspired me to write a poem, which I haven’t done in a long time, but I’ve been longing for the place lately…
O beautiful misty land of my dreams
I want to unfurl you agains my skin and breathe in your scent like a lover
I want to tangle my hands in the manes of your shaggy ponies 
and ride through your hills of heather
I long to dive from your cliffs and dance like a child
to the music of my ancestors.
This has to be the pony I dreamed of when I was a little girl. All messy mane and liquid eyes, multicoloured and fluffy…I fell in love with him all over again when I saw the photo, and I had to ask permission to paint him. The great reference photo was from Rapscallion…which would actually be a great name for this little guy…He looks like a rapscallion 🙂

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
