Once I met Sandra for dinner and noticed she had a large moving lump in the sleeve of her jersey. It turned out to be two baby birds who has fallen out of their nest that she had found on her way to the restaurant. That is just one story of many where Sandra has rescued or helped an animal. She loves all creatures – great and small – but one of her dearest loves is horses. She has ridden all her life, socially and competitively, and owns a few of her own (mostly rescues). This postcard was made with her in mind. I cheated a little and added some gold paint for the floral garland around the horses neck (I’m trying to keep this project monochromatic). It was difficult to draw and I’m not sure that I like it, but here it is.
