THE ESCAPE  -  A contemporay Oil Painting MANIFEST MIND COLLECTION 2009

CLICK PAINTING TO ENLARGE!

This large painting was inspired by the occasional thoughts of escaping from everyday hardships and trials. Life can be so difficult sometimes, filled with hurdles and impasses. This painting was created as a kind of fantasy escape; A psuedo esacpe for the mind. - The rough surface of the painting is indicative of the rough patches faced in a day, or a week of work and life, while the lack of texture found in the central figures calls to mind an energetic and more peaceful place. - There is a purposeful implicit momentum captured in this piece, contrasted by a mock stillness, reminding us that even in a fast paced world, there are moments of quiet repose that calmly await.

Beautiful Large scale Contemporary Oil Painting. The paint is applied in thick layers to the background and brushed delicately onto the horse. You can literally feel the layers rising off of the canvas. This is a one of a kind Oil Painting!

This painting has been displayed in various venues through the Phoenix area and is ready to find a new home!
