Wicked Strong Horse Head Portrait


Remember Wicked Strong, the race horse I painted? Well, here he is again, this time just as a head portrait. 

Horses have fairly good eyesight, thanks to their interesting eye anatomy. At a diameter of roughly 5 centimeters (2 in), their eyes are considered the largest of any land mammal. When measured in volume, a horse’s eye is up to nine time larger than that of a human. Legend has it that this means horses see things as bigger than humans, which is why they sometimes startle easily, but this is only a rumor and not true. 


Canvas prints with and without oil hand embellishment can be ordered in a variety of sizes and if you like to find out how to order your own portrait contact me.
