The alpha mare of species Equus is in charge of the herd. Most think it is the stallion. Not so. Granted the stallion oversees procreation, safety, finding water and grazing territory, but the alpha mare is the one who maintains the integrity of the herd, organizes the hierarchy and determines who drinks when, who grazes where and helps to maintain peace among the herd. She is ever watchful, often scanning the herd and the horizon, ready to put a foal in its place or bolt at the slightest threat.

Can You Sea Horse

Can You Sea Horse

Sometimes I just have to throw paint, dyes, pigments or whatever is nearby and see what happens. In this particular piece I also used a plastic resist which helped to create patterns. I set it in the corner of my studio to dry. When I looked at the overall image it appeared to me to be a representation of a seahorse. Thus the name. Maybe you see something else…
