White Horse


This is the first creation in my project on thinking big, inspired by the book by Richard Newton; The Little Book of Thinking Big. The project is to create ten pieces of artwork, one for each chapter in the book including the introduction, each representing a message relating to thinking big i.e. thinking more productively and creatively.

This is a white horse as the crest of a wave as it breaks is known. The Chinese characters mean white horse and refer to a proverb about life being fleeting but I have used them to refer to the white horse as representing an idea travelling from and across the ocean (one’s sub-conscious) and breaking on the shore (entering one’s mind).
