Pekkalainen,Leena-Patience of Time
Patience of Time / Other / 16,5 x 23,4" / 42 x 59cm / NFS

Description: I was thinking about how time heals wounds. As humans we have to go through many such separations we would never want to encounter. And yet it is because of these partings we learn about love and distance and learn that if love is for real, there really is no distance either. When something in life really hurts us, it is like time condenses, non-essentials fall away and a new time begins. What we experienced will stay with us for the rest of our lives and it has molded us but life goes on. We continue forward, and we must continue forward and if things go well, sorrow has taught us that we can't take any person for granted. Color pencil on paper In artists own collection

Leena Pekkalainen

I am a self-taught artist. I have been painting horses since I was three years old. For many years my painting remained only a hobby but then a gallerist I knew persuaded me to have my own horse art show. Reviews were kind and the word spread, horse owners started calling and ordering portraits of their horses. I use pastels, color pencils, pencils, acrylics and mixed media.
I strive to paint beauty, and to me a horse is the most beautiful subject. I also take great care to paint anatomically correct horses but I also want to bring out the soul of a horse, that special spark and magic each horse has. You, the viewer, are the best judge of my success in this. And as many horse owners had other animals in their household also, I have been doing cat and dog portraits as well. Please be welcome to visit my site to see more of my work.
