New Work of Vicky Tesmer - Equestrian Series

Rosa Bonheur, French Equestrian painter from the mid-1800's said, "If we don't always understand animals, they always understand us."
Given she was from a period in time when woman professionals were not taken seriously nor
accepted into the art leagues and guilds, she is quoted saying, "Art is a tyrant. It demands heart,
brain, soul, body.  The entireness of the votary.  Nothing less will win its highest favor.
I wed art.  It is my husband, my world, my life dream, the air I breathe.
I know nothing else, feel nothing else, think nothing else."
