Artwork Inspired by Charlie Mackesy
The Boy and the Horse
Asked by my children’s school teacher to help with a backdrop. With only a short space of time to create something, I reached for the family bible. Well that’s how I like to think of it.. Charlie’s book of beautiful illustrations teamed with his heart moving quotes inspired today’s scene. His work has moved so many adults and children’s hearts already. I can’t recommend his book “The Boy, the mole, the fox & the horse” enough. It’s stunning! A boy on a horse, on a journey.. a feeling of wonder. The backdrop will be used in creating something very unique and special at the school soon. Hopefully inspiring others. It was so lovely to help at the school today. Thank you so much for asking me, and thank you Charlie for your awe inspiring work. I think this is my largest painting to date!
