Bridgewater Team

We travelled to Bridgewater Nova Scotia as part of a longer excursion along the southern coast of the province. 
The day was hot and sunny, perfect to enjoy the sights and sounds of the South Shore Exhibition.

As we walked by the barns a team of big black percheron draft horses freshly washed and brushed danced as they were led through the yard. I was so impressed by their youthful steps, power and size I immediately decided to use them as models for a painting.

They seemed ancient and modern all at once.
