Portfolio V (2D)     Persian Horse ll

In the Persian Horse ll series,  the tight Persian Horse motif is placed in a loosely painted landscape, often with the purpose of creating a very still image.

The decorated horse blanket is intended to concentrate the focus on a patch of floral detail in one small part of the painting, and in contrast to a freely painted landscape.

The mound and tree(s) are as important as the apparent subject; they are in dialogue with the animal, and are often the object of the painting's title.
