Tara Brown Equine Artist
'A Foggy 5am Under the Floodlights, At the Track.'
A finalist in the Inglis Equine Art Prize 2012.

Early one morning, I stumbled upon the most amazing eerie scene at the Hawkesbury racetrack, NSW, Australia. A trainer, his thoroughbred charge and the track rider (jockey) discussing the intricate details of the ride. A backdrop of fog made a wall of pale blue. The water droplets were thick in the air which gave an appearance as if a sheet of fog hung from the sky. The black of the light-less morning rose above the floodlight. Early morning at the racetrack. This was a magic moment.

Awaiting Her Master

Original oil painting.
An Arabian mare waiting for her master to come back home from his journey. The Arabian horse is known for their loyalty and close relationship bond to their master. Her yearning, reflects this. The light from the desert sands and the blue from the brilliant desert sky is seen clearly in the use of reflective light on her body. The authentic Arabian tent. A breeze blows, while she waits, but her focus is on her master and does not waiver, despite the movement of the tassels.
16" x 20" stretched canvas.
