"Beauty and the Beast"

6”x 6”
acrylic on masonite
Having children means that I have ridden on my fair share of carousels. I love the colors and ornamentation on the animals, but there is one horse in particular that I see too often. This model happens to be the one carousel horse I like least I call him the The Beast. I find this model of carousel horse so over the top with it’s mane sitting outrageously higher than any of the others. It should have not surprised me when my daughter went straight to this one to ride. Then she turned to me and demanded that I not touch her horse. They deserve each other, had this not have happened, I would have never been able to take the image that you are now viewing. Oh, and after painting this horse, I have a new found appreciation for it’s design.
