I Look (a little something I wrote)
.

I look for the small things and I look for the big. I look to make the insignificant significant. I look for the beauty and I look for the emotion. The connectivity. I look for what’s on the inside, what goes beyond the surface. I look for things that are unknown, things that are apart of me. This is what I look for. I am indescribably drawn to search and find ways to express what I see. To understand. I am an artist and this is why I look. 💛 #theHorseAsArt #twohearts

Loving my new paints from France 🇫🇷 😁 by #Charvin who uses ancient recipes dating back to 1830 to make their oils — they made oil colors for Artists such as Cezanne, Bonnard, and Ambrogiani 🎨 #TheHorseAsArt

🇫🇷 FRANCE 🇫🇷 all the feels ——-> on the plane now and after 22 days of wonderful travel I am so thankful to have gone but so exited to be home - to get back in the studio 🎨 and smother the weens with kisses 🐶 🐶 ...and also finish moving into my new condo❤️ #franceANDkenya2018 #motherdaughtertravel

I’ve been reflecting on my time in Kenya and words fall short in describing my experience there. Beautiful, inspiring, sobering, heartbreaking. I’m so inspired and thankful for what Mully Children’s Family has done for thousands of orphaned and high risk children. Even in the midst of darkness, God is working. @mcf_usa

When you really love a place for years and years, for its beauty and mystery, for its story of ruin and restoration, and you finally have the chance to visit this place, it imprints on you unlike any other. Because when you arrive, it’s even more than what you had imagined. You get to become a part of a story that began hundreds of years ago...✨ ...and then after all of that when you walk up the Château drive riding a Cheval de Mérens... 💛 It feels like a dream. Thank you @chateaugudanes and the incredible Waters family for this special experience #chateaudegudanes #cheateauexperience #chevaldemerens #EquestriansInFrance #ArtistsInFrance #julieferrisart #julieferrisequestrianartist #lifebetweentheears #twohearts #thehorseasart

The Cheval de Mérens are native to the Pyrenees and Ariégeois Mountains. These small black horses have been recorded as early as the time of Julius Ceasar in the Ariège region and were used to pull artillery for Napoleon’s army, among many other things over the years. They are now mainly used as a riding horse and are sent to the mountains during the summers and brought back to the valley for the winter🖤

I’m so excited about this work in progress for my artist feature Exhibition with @grandbohemiancharleston in October 2019 — this series focuses on the 🏙Horse As Architecture🌆 -

I am fascinated by and continually drawn to the spaces we shape, which in turn shape us🤗 (horses as well) // this work is titled #EquineArchitecture : 35”x70” // also inspired by my love for printmaking as you can see the white border around the edge of the canvas as well as the more graphic qualities of the piece #theHorseAsArchitecture #theHorseAsArt #thehorseasartBYjulieferris

🤲🏻🐴Hands are what give us the ability to reach outside ourselves - to touch someone or something :::: To create, to relate - we need to reach outside ourselves to do this ✍🏼 💛 I’ve been using hands as subject matter in my work since high school and they continue to make appearances even now // Cropped portion from lifesized painting STEADFAST // Oil on Canvas // living in Doha, Qatar 🇶🇦 #Steadfast #SoldBySpaldingNixFineArt #twohearts #thehorseasart #thehorseasartBYjulieferris
