Horse Ride
The minute you lay eyes on this week’s painting, you can’t help but be somewhat mesmerized by this Haitian artist’s impressive attention to detail. He captures beautifully the scenery of a peasant, who is possibly heading to the village outdoor market, hoping to collect a few bucks from the sell of his fresh fruits and vegetables. The lighting, the shading and the intricate details down to the hole that shows the vegetable in the bag, collectively make this a compelling piece. But through this great drawing, he also seems to have captured the emotions of a man. A hard working Haitian peasant who with his smirk seems uncertain that this will be a productive trip but remains hopeful. Even the beautiful horse seems to echo his owner fears as it strides nonchalantly down the beaten path. This is truly a great piece of art.
