Wild Horses

Sarah Janece Garcia's equine work of art is part of a two-part series of paintings inspired by horses throughout history; view the companion piece, Reveler. Using only two shades of watercolor paint and a material that has inspired many of history's most creative thinkers--coffee--her piece captures the literal and symbolic power of horses throughout history. Native American tribes revered horses as mythical creatures, and in addition to caring for these majestic steeds, they trained them to work as their partners in accomplishing feats that would result in broadening the tribe's lives in many positive ways. To many, the horse remains a figure of freedom and an echo of the past, and this artwork was meant to embody the timeless qualities and energy of a steed galloping through the wind. Designed in San Antonio, Texas. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

“When I love and respect nature, nature always returns the favor,” says Sarah Janece Garcia, who expresses her admiration for the natural world via heavily saturated oil and watercolor paintings. Using a style that ranges from literal to abstract, Garcia favors depictions of “flying creatures” and florals, allowing “the movements of wind and water” to guide her brush.

Surprisingly, however, the self-taught artist says it’s not a bright outdoor setting that inspires her best work. Instead, the self-described “night owl” says she prefers painting at her home studio in San Antonio, Texas in the middle of the night. “I find the nighttime to be the most inspirational,” she says, adding that a dim workspace is what allows her to “better paint the light.”
