King Horse


Just to shake it up a bit. This one's a not so recent sketch by Arna. Guache and india ink.

I dig this Arna. There's a rich mineral-bearing deposit below this.

Elliot said...

Now then - this is absolutely marvellous.
I couldn't be more excited about seeing an image such as this.
It's just wonderful.
Very fine work indeed.

I'm suddenly having a panic attack that that my comment was too cryptic. I love it. It stands alone but there is a wealth of material below the surface of it that could provide for a whole series of paintings.

This is awesome!! So unique and creative!

Hi guys! Really glad you like this one. Elliot, Alina, I very much appreciate your feedback.

Clive, thanks for coming back. After I thought about your first comment I kind of figured you meant that, but it's now that you clarified the note it's very cool to hear your encouragement. Also I'm liking your mineral analogy. I did it many years ago and I'm enjoying revisiting that 'vien' of work. I hope to explore further!

Thank you Todd for the walking Puf! I'm happy you like the image. Hope that your sleep is back to normal.

Dear Mike,
Thank you so much. However, you who have plenty of your own fantastic imagination, do not need mine!

Pat, Thanks! Though the orig is quite small but I'd love to make larger hi-res prints of it. It could be good on a wall. I'd also love to paint more variations. Just now the storyboard gig's taking precedence!

Cheers-A

EEEEEK!

Arna - I LOVE King Horse! That is so fantastic. I don't know, there's just something about it. The teeth? Oh, I don't know - it's ALL good.

Also, I loved the daschund drawings. My mom had a pair of them growing up too. Their names were Gretchen and Sarah. Tee hee - Gretchen.....isn't that great?

Thanks Emilie-Claire! There are times when I enjoy doing the dark n'angry stuff, and it was fun to read your 'scream' reaction.

Gretchen and Sarah sound like perfect names for dachshunds.

By the way, your description of the $6 chocolat bar got my mouth watering, and John and I say thanks for linking to doodlin' on your blog.

Felixsputnik, thanks! We'd love to see your painting. And more of those amazing sculptures of yours!
