When Space Horses Fly

Ok y'all, here is my third completed painting for this semester! By the way this and Broken but Beautiful were recently featured in an on-campus gallery show.

The Space Horse
This piece was a two-part project based on a collage I created from magazine clippings. Staying true to my love for horses, I chose a lot of equine related images. But the astronomy theme was totally unintentional! During our process crit I only had the gray on the bottom (intended to be wood) and most of the monochrome horse. Everyone in class thought the wood was actually a moonscape and someone christened it the "Space Horse" and, well, I just ran with it, lol. I love astronomy, too, so it was a perfect fit!
