About this artwork
A lone mustang painted with war paint stands on a grassy hillside watching the sun set. The pinto coated horse's black mane and tail blow in the wind as the light from the sun set lights up the clouds as if they were on fire.
The markings on the horse have a variety of meanings:
For keen senses, it has the sun painted around its eye.
Because he has brought his rider back unharmed from battle, there is a hand print on its hindquarters.
A red cross means that it escaped an ambush.
The fire arrow on its neck to cause harm to its foes.
Because it has pushed a person over, the horse has hand prints on its chest.
The zigzagged lines are lightning to give the horse energy.
The blue dots are hail to rain down upon enemies.
This image was actually a bit of a follow up to an earlier image that I made of the same horse with a rider ( DanielEskridge.com/featured/warrior-and-war-horse-daniel-eskridge.html ). I wanted to create one that was the same scene but with the horse alone. I found that I rather liked the more singular focus.
