Phantom. You saw him in the mountains, wild and free, a stallion of great majesty and strength. Or perhaps you saw him on the western plains, galloping with the speed and grace of a mystical horse that belonged to Zeus in another life. Or maybe he was the horse of a great Indian warrior. Now he haunts your dreams. You wish that you could stroke his mane, nuzzle his nose, or dare you climb upon his back and race through the clouds of night with him? Did someone once love him and stroke his neck? Is it loneliness that you see in his eyes? Is he searching for a master lost to the earth?
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….His beauty is unsurpassed. Just a glimpse of his mane whipping in the wind – his dark eyes piercing right through you as you gaze on his glorious face. He is the past. He is the future. He is a passing spirit of the unknown.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….This painting was done in acrylics. The layers of color in his mane were added incrementally, each one drying before the next color could be added. The mane melts into the background, making the horse one with the painting, just as he is one with the sky. He is mesmerizing, intense, yet whimsical. Different. Unique. The Phantom.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………. “Phantom” would be an especially wonderful gift for any horse lover.

Eloise enjoys painting in a variety of styles and accepts commissions for paintings on canvas and antique wood. She is also a book illustrator.
