Description from www.johnpitre.com :
The rider represents all of us. The horse, Pegasus (the mythical creature of poetic inspiration), is symbolic of the vehicles we choose to ride through life -- our occupations, goals, loves, and dreams.
The silver ropes tethering us to earth are the "restrictions" which temporarily prevent us from flying without limitations to embrace our dreams and goals.
The rider looks skyward with hope and optimism towards a vision of himself (and Pegasus), free and unencumbered, in the clouds.

Excerpts from the John Pitre website:
Look closely at a painting by John Pitre, and you will look into the mind and soul of a great thinker. Look beyond the surface, and into its depths. Pitre is sharing with you his vision of our purpose in the universe, reminding us of the responsibilities we have as stewards of our planet, to be the caretakers of the creatures that inhabit it, and to hold dear the fragile relationships we build with others. He is trying to tell you about life, warning you about its difficulties and pitfalls, but encouraging you to follow your longings and aspirations to achieve your dreams.
"Passion thrusts us to our highest possible emotional state, then slowly fades as a rainbow does from its peak moment of glory. In most things so very intense, the memory always lingers, and we long to feel it once more. Like most great adventures, to feel deep passion can be dangerous. For whenever we soar to great heights, we become vulnerable, and with ecstasy there is always the potential for agony."
