About

The subject for “Against the Wind” is a lovely warm colored Bay horse with a black mane and tail. Inspirational for creating this piece was the stance of this horse as the horse seems to be enduring the elements. I always admired the toughness and adaptability of horses. To begin this painting, I first applied layers of molding paste and an Acrylic binder mixed with sand and mortar to create lots of texture. For me, the layers of texture give this piece substance, depth, and atmosphere. There are various tones of iridescent antique gold to finish this painting with hints of warm colors on the horse and cool colors in the foreground. :: Painting :: Contemporary :: This piece comes with an official certificate of authenticity signed by the artist :: Ready to Hang: Yes :: Signed: Yes :: Signature Location: bottom right :: Canvas :: Diagonal :: Original :: Framed: No
