I suppose it appears here as a 'regression' - but you get the idea.
The blue horse started as the original non-conformist, bucking the flow, serenely and securely... it has evolved into the otherworldly image of a departed friend who has peacefully 'stopped', while the flux and flow of this life continues on.
This piece features a tiny oil painting (approx. business-card size) framed by the mortise in a chunk of beam from our old barn. The barn once housed a modest dairy herd, but like so many small family farms, it does so no more.
