The Dream Chaser

Jennifer VanderPloeg's avatar Jennifer VanderPloeg

Thank you for visiting! 'The Dreamchaser' is a portrait of Jasper, a popular Friesian stallion in the Netherlands. It is currently installed at West Coast Coffee at 55 Monroe Center. Stop by anytime! Painting Biography: This piece is not just a horse, but a portrait of an ambitious stallion, proud and strong in the face of gathering storm. It symbolizes the journey that many of us are on, struggling against the wind of life's troubles and the tough economy. But if we look a little closer, at our situation compared to the rest of the worlds... we will see that sometimes the daily journey and the people we have in our lives become the Dream and we do not have to be afraid anymore. We are blessed indeed. Cally Matherly was the photographer for the reference photos that I used for this portrait of Jasper. She took the photos while overseas in the Netherlands!! :) Thanks again Cally!
