This is a painting done in response to making two paper horse heads for my son's play when he was in grade school. It was a Norse myth wherein Loki turned himself into a white horse that lured away a black one--all very important to the plot of intriguing gods. The two characters wore long robes of matching black or white. I ended up also making backdrops for different scenes and photographing my son wearing the heads in various guises. Thus the painting of the two based on my son running about in the costumes with the ribbons streaming out behind.
Like some of my other paintings the image has a logo-like quality and the silhouette is central.
Its a good way to really bang the eye.
