The rolling hills, plank fences and steepled barns of Kentucky bluegrass country are iconic for their beauty and equine romance. The horse farm and the family who lives there are depicted here in “Deep in the Heart II: Kentucky Bluegrass” to give the viewer a taste of that bucolic existence. Thoroughbreds romp in the field and a mare and its foal enjoy the attentions of a father and daughter while the ranch dog playfully approaches. In the background, we see the beginnings of the preparations made for “derby day” as a horse stretches its legs into a full-fledged gallop. The clouds, themselves, fill with the thunderous sound of a ghost herd looking down over pastures once their home. Deep in the Heart II: Kentucky Blue Grass is my homage to a way of life, the majesty of the horse and the beauty of the region that fosters both. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I enjoyed taking you there. And, as always, I want to thank you for sharing my adventures in art.
