#696 "Ancient Passage"

"Ancient Passage"
23"H 23"W 8"D
Edition 25

Our Morgan gelding was used as the model for Ancient Passage.  My goal was to idealize 
the animal and create a powerful image.  I am preoccupied with modeling horses and 
consciously stylize my designs.  My obsession with modeling horses continues to lay 
a thorough foundation for my art, just as playing scales does for a musician.  In my 
opinion, horses and the human figure are the most difficult creatures to transform into 
a visual expression - perhaps it's because they are both so beautiful.
