I had to work a Pinto into the series!
Jantzen Beach Carousel is a series, and this is the fourth in the set.
(Below are links to others previously posted.)
The many layers, above and below.
I think the fish, below, show the layers in a microcosm.
Under-painting helps to make the fish glow, and Daniel Smith Primateks
(on the fish, Serpentine and Diopside greens) assist with that wonderful texture.
Pinto Fishing Horse is his name.
These horses are akin, it seems,
to the Water Serpent horses, right,
in that they too have some sort of very Tibetan or totem-pole looking fierce
faces on them which I see as water serpents. In this one, however,
the two fish are tied to his side and
another strapped across the back of
his saddle, and the serpent’s face is
looking up at the horse and
is without his fish-like tail.
Hard to let this one go…
Fishing Horse made me decide to scan and create art prints to sell.
These images are donated to raise money for the restoration of the carousel!

Thanks Gillena! I am doing my darnedest to figure out how to edit a video on how I did these…
Oh wow, so well done! Especially like the fish. Great to see you featured on PPF!
Thanks Minnemie! Twice in a couple of months. I think I need to head to Vegas!
You have given my eyes many beautiful sights to behold. Love the layering and watching it unfold.
Thanks Lizzie — I see you are also doing inktober! Yay! I set up an Inktober Public Posting for anyone who can’t post publicly on FB because they are in closed groups. https://www.facebook.com/groups/180261502414919/
Love all your work, so vibrant and rich! Happy PPF!
I love seeing your creative art and the beautiful layered colors, Kate.
Thanks Faye; I really enjoyed doing these and will do more outside the commission work. And making prints, which I haven’t done a long time!
So many wonderful pieces today. I enjoyed my visit. 🙂 Erika
These are lovely, D. Katie! Have you seen the carousel in Salem next to the Willamette river? Also lovely! Xxx
Thanks Nadya. I know of it, and now think I must go take pics as I am going to do more of these images! Nadya, I’d love to follow you, but not through Google connect — if you do bloglovin it’d be grand! I see you are a woman of color gal!
This is spectacular. Well done my friend.
Thank you Nicole!
