The Race

Title: The Race
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: oil on stretched canvas
These horses come to life with brilliant color and texture. I used all my favorite teals, reds and golds with many layers of thick oil. I have long been interested in patterns of color and love the way the oil moves with a palette knife, like rich butter, visceral and deep. Though this work is fairly abstract, I wanted this painting to be believable, so ou can feel the movement of the animals and their strength. Three seems to be a great number for almost any piece.
I hope you enjoy this and it reminds you to really feel "the wind in your hair"!

You can find this painting on auction soon or Etsy for purchase!
