'Kunara Light is the foal from one of two Shetland mares taken into the Mustang Sanctuary just prior to their foaling. Kunara seemed healthy at birth, and then rapidly deteriorated, and Mary Ann documented the fight for his life over three days to social media . I was drawn into the emotion of it due to the similarities between the loss of my mare’s foal also just after rescue, and also due to neglect of the mother during pregnancy.
During one long night, I decided to paint him, and capture his glorious soul. Kunara’s story has a happy ending, he recovered, and growing up full of life. The crystal Mala depicted on his neck is one of the beautiful malas that Mary makes to fund raise for the sanctuary, I have one in my studio.'
