    I'm loving this new direction Garry - not saying I didn't appreciate the more abstract style but now I don't have to work so hard to see the 'message'.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    It is charming

    I love impressionism and the subject is so dear. I got to pet a brand new colt years ago. They are amazing and so soft. Definitely enjoy the painting Gary.

    I understand that, abstracts by their very nature are not easily grasp, but in doing them for the past few years I learned so much about digital color and mark making, it seems to have come full circle for me going back to a loose impressionistic realism that incorporates what I have learned.

    thanks Marilyn Anne I guess we both live in horse country, as I was driving around the other day with my camera I wanted to get some reference material and knew this pasture had 3-4 new colts and their mares with some outstanding twisted old junipers and bright green grass..

    Excellent one! More neo-macchiaiolo than neo-impressionist I'd say (not too different after all) and a most aweful painting indeed! You know how to transpose a scene or a picture into a tasty artpiece!

    Ah thanks Caesar, once again the depth of knowledge in your art history lead me to look up new-macchiaiolo.. and I found Florentine Giovanni Fattori one of its best artists. also this page that describes the method. You are absolutely spot on, the "patches" of light and dark are the style I wanted, not knowing of neo-macchiaiolo however..

    Actually the prefix neo (new in ancient Greek) is an addition of mine to indicate that You're not exactly among the starting Macchiaioli painter wave ...LOL as an example of a serious use of it in art history I may cite the Neoclassicisme of Ingres for instance.
