Painted Ponies

This painting is a metaphor for leaving the carousel of modern life, where we all run around in circles, faster and faster, never getting anywhere, our expressions frozen on our faces. These ponies have traded their jeweled bridles and saddles for war paint. They’ve broken away from the safety and boredom of the carousel, into the uncertainty and exhilaration of freedom.
