A Horse Named Whimsy
Painting - Acrylic - Brush And Palette Knife
This print is from my original painting of a horse named Whimsy. In deference to the horse's name, I created this work in a very whimsical style, almost dream-like. The original is in a private collection.
Whimsy is painted using a palette knife in a style called "impasto" which is the Italian name given to a style where paint is applied to the canvas layer by layer. Then other details were added using a strong brush stroke. The result is a whimsical and expressive horse in an impressionistic style.
The prints capture the essence of Whimsy, the wind shipping through his mane. He has stopped for but a moment, to decide the direction of his run. Should he follow the wind? Perhaps.
