Description of All Heart
All Heart is an original colored pencil portrait of a Standardbred racing horse after a hard won victory. My model is a very fine bay filly I had the opportunity to photograph at the Midland County Fairgrounds in August 1999. Her name is Raspberry Worthy and at the time, she was a two-year-old trotter.
That day was the day for the Spartan Futurity – Two-Year-Old Filly Trot, an annual event for Michigan harness racing at the Midland facility. I photographed each of the Spartan races and later searched through the photographs looking for good subjects.
Raspberry Worthy appeared in several photographs in full glory and at speed, but the series of images after the race caught my attention. She was one tired horse! But in spite of that, she had a look of being where she belonged. The contrast of weariness and rightness is what caught my eye in the photographs.
And, I hope, is what I was able to capture in this colored pencil portrait.
