Ghost Horse of Freedom

24”x18” Oil on Board

A study of Lucian Freud’s work.  If ever there is a self-portrait of me, I am the horse looking at the man, wondering what self-inflected struggle has brought him to this.  A place most of us have been in, one time or another.  A contrast of the different reds, both in the background as well as the man himself and the multi-textures compared to the cleanness of the white horse that almost glows.

The horse, a whitish yellow, behind and to the right.  The man, colors yellow and red, eyes, unseeing.  Hair so black. The background, turbulent, volcanic reds anxious to explode.
