Brothers in Color

Laurie Pace (2009), oil on canvas

Brothers in Color is fascinating in its use of linear colors to create shapes and outlines. The images of the horses alone are very elegant and compelling—creating the illusion of diversity and conformity. Using the multitude of colors, the painting communicates a frantic first glance which transitions into a tranquil herd of horses. I was amazed by how well the images complement each other despite the seemingly random shades. It apparently took 15 layers to complete the painting, which suggests that a great time and thought was done to arrange the subjects. It certainly has a peaceful nature which I find calming and embracing.
