Unleashing the Wild Woman Within: Embracing Feminine Power and Freedom

Updated: Feb 9

She walked life's wintry miles

for soul to flame her inner fire.

- Angie Weiland Crosby

During the winter time of January, I felt a light within that pushed me to create this new wild woman painting.

It all started with a dream I had. If you are like me, when you wake up after a dream that was magical and felt like reality, you want to write it down or try to understand it. That dream was about someone bringing to me 3 horses. It felt so real! I have rarely dreamt of horses, I don't see horses where I live and so to dream about it so clearly was kind of unique.... To me, the horse is so powerful, majestic and wild. It symbolizes the freedom and strength.

In the dream, one of the three horses cames to me and got really close, I felt a connection. So I decided to take a new blank canvas and start painting. My favorite horse are the wild mustangs, when I went to Utah a few years ago I was hoping to see them. I saw the appaloosa in a ranch I drove by, I made a stop to look at them. There were so beautiful. It has always been my dream to get close to a horse and not feel afraid.
