Cara VL Equine Art


Cara is an accomplished artist with a passion for horses. At the age of nine, she began taking riding lessons and quickly fell in love with the sport, particularly the discipline of jumping. This love for the sport is evidently reflected in her art, where she captures the beauty and grace of horses in her oil paintings. Cara's horses are depicted with remarkably long legs, signifying both their delicateness and the fragility of their well-being. Her paintings are masterfully textured and layered, created almost entirely with a palette knife. Her work is both dynamic and evocative, showcasing her deep understanding and appreciation for the equine form. Whether you're an equestrian or simply a lover of fine art, Cara's paintings are sure to capture your attention and leave a lasting impression
