Jantzen Beach Carousel 4, Pinto Fishing

w16-9-5-ro-jantzen-carousel-fishing-horse-sqI 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.)

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.

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.

Fishing Horse made me decide to scan and create art prints to sell.
