"You Told Me To Wait For You": new mixed media work

"You Told Me To Wait For You" is a 48"x 36" mixed media (acrylic, ink, collage, oil varnish wash) work on canvas that is part of a larger series exploring horses, figures, relationships, and aloneness. This horse seemed to me to be waiting for someone or something. Somehow, I'm reminded of the play: "Waiting For Godot" when I think of waiting. Literary references come up for me often when I'm painting.

In this work, I began with an oil varnish wash of hansa yellow orange and from there used inks, acrylics, and painted collage pieces to create the composition.
