Desert Son


This miniature painting is a cropped view of a horse showing the intensity of the eye as it looks out into the world.  You can feel his uncertainty mixed with a wee bit of fear.  The eye tells all.  Watching horses has made for, "A Painting Day".

Love your art!

Silly me, I thought it was a small figure in a sand storm at first until I clicked on the blog and saw it was an eye. Boy did I feel foolish. Now the eye is all I can see! Interesting! Now that is cropping.
