This is a tragic story of a beautiful beautiful horse, Wahine, who
left for stud, came home lame, gave birth to a beautiful foal called Lilly, and
became so ill from infection that revaged her body, that she was put down, only
weeks after the birth.
There weren't many photos of Wahine, let alone her
with Lilly, and when I was approached to do this portrait, I didn't know the
story, and was reluctant given that the photo was so grainy and lacked
resolution and asked why a photographer friend couldn't just 'get some more
shots'. Then I got the story.
Mum of the horses, Kathy, was overwhelmed when presented with
this work, and she now has an eternal memory of her gorgeous girl and her
Lilly has stayed with the family and remains their favourite
horse. After meeting Lilly I agree, she is beautiful, and apparently even eats
shoelaces on your shoes when you stand by her......just like her mum Wahine.
It was simply an honour to do this work. kindly Karina

I feel very at peace when I look
at this work, and was very at peace drawing him, and what struck me is the
majesty and perfection of nature.
I hope you like! kindly Karina xx
