25 Apr An update on the “Range Stallion’s Final Hour”
It seems this painting has some controversy to it, so I would like to shed some light on why I think I chose such an unhappy subject.
All artists express themselves through their creations. I mean, its not always about painting pretty pictures. Art that evokes emotion is both therapeutic and healing. Here in Montana, our artist’s community has experienced several tragic deaths in the past few months. As dreadful as the painting seems, I believe it could be my way of processing the grief associated with these events. Today, after receiving several negative reactions to it, I even considered altering the piece to reflect a more pleasant scene. But the therapy for me would then be lost, so I’ve decided to let stand.
Thanks everyone for your comments, heres to happier days!
