These paintings began as an artistic exploration and reflection on Cervantesí Rocinante in Don Quixote. Rocinante wins over the readerís heart not by exuding all the traditional characteristics of a literature horse but by displaying trustworthiness, loyalty and a good heart and soul. From there, Caland takes off on her own artistic meditation on the mystical and mysterious Rocinante.
