Red and Blue Horse

Red and Blue Horse

A collector who works for a wild horse sanctuary asked if I could interpret Franz Marc's "red and Blue Horse" in my style, or do anything that it inspired. Fun Challenge! I've been painting 'orbs' in my work and it came to me I could cluster the orbs into horses. I chose a large window, and reverse-painted on the glass. Much of the glass is left unpainted, revealing a rustic wood-grained background dotted with photographs of horses.

Franz Marc, Red and Blue Horse, 1912

Here's Fran Marc's painting.

Thinking about horses so much to me to paint my first ever cowboy robot. Looking forward to what comes next!
