Out to Pasture Too, equine art by Fawn

"Out to Pasture Too"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas
(painting continues on the sides, framing is optional)

I have been working on this painting all week. I am getting ready for two more shows, and wanted some larger work than my small Daily Paintings. This is a repeat of a painting I did years ago. I reversed the whole composition and made the colors softer this time (which I really like). I used a different horse and used a larger canvas. I have added a blue heron instead of an alligator in the foreground. This painting has a more impressionistic quality to it as well.

Lots of symbolism: End of summer, last season of life for the horse too. Time to slow down, time to retire. The colors emphasize that.
