Another Ancient Oil Painting

Another oil done in the early 60's, probably 1961 when I was 17 years old.  It appears to (1) have yellow paint sprayed all over it, or (2) that I didn't adequately cover the canvas.  However, as it was probably my second ever painting, I give myself some slack.

The painting was done to honor a filly who lived mostly in a field next to our house outside of Lubbock, Texas.  The barbed wire fence in foreground was supposed to be a subtle indicator of what happened to the wild mustangs of the western U.S. with the advent of the pioneers.

This appeals to me. I love the bold yellow and the silhouette of the horse. Glad your blog is up and running Carole.
