"Through the Fence", 20 x 20 in. oil on canvas.
I have been taking a bit of a break from chicks and flowers to go back to my first love of subject matter--the horses. Through the Fence is reminiscent of an earlier piece of mine, "Nosy". A horse on the other side of a fence...observable, yet just out of reach. They come to the fence expecting treats, pats on the nose, perhaps a scratch on the neck, but the fence is their protection, a barrier from unwanted touch, a window to all that goes on around them.
