January 15 - Lunch Break - Horses

What fun to jump back into the acrylics!  I just love the different way these pigments handle after the slippery sumptuous feel of the oils.
  That said, the fun of layering the textures in acrylics just completely floats my boat.  I composed this strong abstract design with source material from many a ride--all the horses tied up while the riders are away eating lunch together!  The pattern of light and dark and interesting shapes is what makes this painting work.  It is a smallish 9 x 12 on board-backed canvas, and is available for  $375.
