Equine Love Under a Full Moon
My fantasy of two horses coming together under a full moon as a preamble to lovemaking is expressed in this mixed media piece inspired by a recent trip to Northern Arizona. After an unusually heavy Spring rain, the gass to grew greener and taller than usual and the wildflowers bloomed exuberantly along the road. In this blending of pastel, charcoal, colored pencil, and metallic pens on black paper, an imaginary ecosystem is created where Atlantic Seabirds and wild horses coexist in the Southwestern desert. Horses have inspired me as an artist for my entire long life, and I am very interested in juxtaposing images that might not ordinarily appear together in hopes of bringing joy and wonder into the viewers' lives.
