Many years ago I used to be a professional mural painter and this is a commision from a client who owned a crystal shop. It was her Idea to include the glowing piramid so plese folks, please dont think im into drawing illuminati symbols... when your getting paid for it, you have to do what the client says...which is the reason i dont do it any more. It was too stiffeling to creativity.




These are photos of photos so not good quality. the murals were about 8ft high to give you an idea of size.

Thanks Lime lady. I think they are very spiritual and they have taught me so much in terms of humility and generosity. Given their size and strength and how easly they can over power us. they let us put metal in their mouths and saddles on their backs and they let us ride them. They are amazing creatures.

Default last ones for a while now

These are my last equine paintings im gonna post for now (until I do some more that is) they are pet portraits I did for a while to make some extra cash.

I dont like thses quite as much as they stifled my creativity and I found that instead of looking forward to painting horses I began to dread it... not a good vibe, so i stopped painting artwork on a comission basis, unless it was of an abstract concept and the cleint lets me run riot with my imagination.

Even though they are photographs of photocopys and you cant see the brush stroke detail and clarity, i think you can tell these images dont have the same passion behind them?

I conunicated with the horse and he expressed a desire to live so then I offered to draw him for her with an intent for his recovery and she looked at me as if i was bonkers but was also ready to give anything a go so she said "yes"

I drew this with the intent that the spirit guardian of the horse was protecting him from entering the death state. I really focused my intent whilst drawing it.

The next morning the horse was on its feet, withing 24 hours he was eating again. He survived against all odds and againsts the vets prediction.

I offered the picture the the owner, she looked at me abit strangley and out of politeness said "oh....erm, yes". But I would like to think it had an impact.

wow! do you have your artwork posted online? it's amazing. i love your style...

Removed pics to shorten the post soz , but i know what you mean , they are very good but the passion needs to be there to create , it gives life to the paintings .I cant produce when i have to as compared to feeling it then i know i can do it .I have done that with most of my stuff suddenly , eve at 4 in the morning .In fact ipainted the wizard pic with two shelves running along the wall , my girlfriend was out for the night and had all my tools screwdrivers etc in the van so i couldnt take them down , but i didnt want to lose the moment so i did it around them and finished it off later when i could remove them

Yes, I know what your saying. If ones creativity is stifled then it shows in the artwork itself.
I found that when people paid me money to paint their precious pets it took the essence of what I was trying to create away.

I think when the concept of money is used to "buy" creativity it can (temporarily) suck it dry. I know because I was a textile designer for a large company for 5 years. During that time I was so washed out from being "forced" to create on a daily basis, I never painted or made drawings in my own private time.

Default Wow...

Yet more stunning work, you really know horses

Unfortunately I haven't had much experience with horses but what I have had tells me they certainly are extraordinary creatures

Keep up the good work Jojo

I've always felt a connection with horses too, perhaps because I was born the year of the horse. They are powerful yet gentle and kind and seem so wise.

Your work is amazing Jojo!

What an inspiring thread and beautiful artwork.
But I know what you mean about having your creativity sucked dry by commercialism...

I have a small business designing & making equestrian apparel. But I have put it on hold for a couple of years, for precisely the same reason.
