"Ok. many of you have wondered and I'm sure have really wondered what this whole
fasination with me and a guy on a horse concept came about!" I will start with
when I was in kindergardon. I was assigned to draw a cowboy on a horse. Using
vinella paper and crayons. I went to town. Didn't expect what was to come of it.
Entered it into (The Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Art Show) Won 1st prize. It
was pretty cool.
Through the years. As far as I can remember. My cousin (K) got me started with
my fasination with horses. She had a shetlend pony that we rode alot. I dreamed
to one day ride a full grown horse. Everytime I seen people on their horses I
wanted to ride them but knew I couldn't. So I would get sad. I would envy the
people who had horses. I wanted my own horse.
There were times I got to ride a horse but it was on its butt. My parents and
gardiens would not allow me to ride alone. "I wanted to so badly! I had that
confidence!" During the years I kept watching fantasy, Sci Fi, action advetures
and westerns. Where I would get inspired to see the actors ride their horses. "I
used to have dreams and visions of me riding unicorns or white horses. It was
I would have this arch-type concect over the years of who I was into. I would
see them on a horse. I would get so inspired. That I draw them. Wheather it was
my favorite cartoon character, a person I liked or an actor. I drew it. I even
had certin dreams where I would see a man come riding up on his white horse
would come and take me away.
When (Kyle XY) came out. I thought this guy would look good on a horse. I looked
to see if I could find any material of any interest this guy had any relation to
horses. One day I had a vision. I was at a convenient store. While waiting on
someone to finish ordering their purches. I saw the little t.v. Inside the
store. From sitting in the truck. A scene that looked like the appearance of
Kyle turning his head. A white horse and he was about to mount up. "What was
strange was this t.v. had alot of interferance and couldn't see the image
clearly. Perhaps it was my imagination but whatever it was. It was just neat to
have that experience." ;)
Eversince that moment. I've had dreams where I would see this man on a horse.
I've became OBSESSED with this! It's a subconscience thing. It's inspiration.
It's essoteric. It's sexy. It's magical. "There,,I said it!" I just love horses
and seeing this guy on a horse is just a dream to dream.
When I first heard the announcement of one of Matt's skills was horseback riding
was from (W) from (kylexy.net) told me that it was listed on his headshot photo.
Years go by I would have incredible synchronicities with Matt and horses! ;)
Dec. 30 2007 I've kept seeing Matt riding a horse in my mind's eye. It was a
continuous scene. Then my sister asked me to watch her boys. It was a good
opportunity to get online. Because where I was. I ddn't have access. It was NEW
YEARS Eve. At my sister's I went to my Myspace to asked a friend of his Rachael
Fortier if she can help me find pictures of Matt on a horse. She replied back
"That's funny that you've mentined that. I happened to went horseback riding
with him two days ago and happen to take lots of pictures of Matt on a horse."
WOW! "What was the likly chance of my proir knowkedge of her knowing that I saw
that image in my mind? Also that was the same day I saw that?" ;)
July 2009 I was in Yuma, AZ at my other sisters. Her and my niece and I were to
go to Phoenix to pick up my other niece from the airport. I was online with some
fans discussing about Matt and horses. Then we went to Phoenix. At a shoping
center was a white horse statue reaing up. Then at the airport in one of the
termials. There was a big painting of two cowboys on paint horses.
(Eastwick's Mooning & Crooning) There was a scene where Rebecka and Matt were
walking down the street of a shoping center. Getting ready to get busy. There
was a hobby horse in the background.
(Beauty & The Briefcase) Annother scene of walking down the street of a shoping
center. Matt was discussing to Hilery's character. He went horseback riding and
fell off the horse. My mom made a comment. "That looks alot more like Matt." She
watched it with me. "It was an out of the blue comment at that right moment!"
I painted servreal attempts over the years of Matt Dallas on a horse but none of
them did any justice. I panted my first attempt and posted on (kykexy.net
forums) of he and I riding. Then a user called (funOne) made a cute comment.
"Giddy up!" Along with a hppy face cowboy riding a horse. "Matt if you read
this? That is a horrible painting, lol!" I learned to better myself at it. I
wanted to do a good job at this.
2011 I got inspired by his character Jake from (As Good As Dead) I thought I
paint him on a horse, so it did. (Above)
What was the neatest thing was that Matt saw that painting RTed by many of my
followers on Twitter. Said the most amazing comment...
@themattdallas One of the most incredible pieces done by the very talented
@Kebflower you are awesome.
Thank you Matt. Believe it or not. That tweet made my day. I had a rough day
that day and you made it bright!
Did other paintings of Matt on a horse but I'm not there yet. I still want to
paint the most beautiful Matt Dallas on a horse painting! ;)
