Pastel - Pastel
An Arizona postcard inspired me to create a painting of a horse in lightning. When I created the painting, I studied how the lightening traveled. I was reminded of physics classes which taught me that lightning always seeks the ground. Without a preconceived idea of what horse shape to draw, I drew each bolt as if it was real lightning crackling across the paper. What resulted was the haunting shape of a horse with its head held high as if fighting the earthly tethers that momentarily held it captive. Some people see other images in the lightning, such as a Native dancer, a wizard, a sasquatch, and even a whale.
