New Work - Break Away

With a shrill, echoing scream of defiance at his human captor, Pegasus springs powerfully into the sky from the high mountain cliff! With strong wingbeats, he is soon just a glittering speck of white against a foggy mountain cloudscape!  

I love to paint Pegasus!  Leaping for the sky or soaring like an eagle, there is something so facinating about a winged horse!  I try to paint my Pegs as if they could really be real!  From skeletal anatomy to muscles  to wing shape and size, creating a flying horse and making him believable is my favorite fantasy painting subject!   This Peg painting is 5x7 on birch.
