"Dashing Through the Snow"
Dashing Through the Snow is figurative abstraction that began as a photo of a horse that I took one winter's day. Back in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina it emerged through digital paintography to become the image you see here.

Symbolism: In this image the dashing horse is symbolic of the light of compassion emerging through darkness- of hope and "good energies." The strength and energy of the horse conveys encouragement. Here, the mixture of geometric shapes and black and white with just a tiny bit of red tossed in for emphasis enhance the mood of the scene.
In this paintography piece, the juxtaposition of color with changing light symbolizes positive change through envisioning Change with Compassion.
How it Happened: As I translated the photo into mixed media format, I reached out for the story and metaphor utilizing digital manipulation to create the narrative as texture, patterns, repetition, and "post-painterly-abstraction fauve-wave" bits to create a collage.
