Year of the Horse

For those who are unaware 2014 is the Year of the Horse according to the Chinese zodiac which relates each year to an animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year cycle. The Chinese also believe that people born under a certain zodiac animal inherit some of that particular creature’s traits… hopefully having a horsey personality is a good thing!

Truthfully, we were really just looking for a good excuse to share these BEAUTIFUL equine paintings with you! Painted by our favourite Cape Town artist, Gavin Collins these striking horse paintings have a dark romantic quality about them. I particularly love the broody and mysterious colour palette.

What do you think, do you like them as much as we do?
