RED PALOMO

My new painting "Red Palomo"
2016 Acrylic and oil on canvas 150x100cm (59x39.4")

Palomo was Simon Bolivar's horse.

Red Palomo was his distant cousin who refused to be tamed and ran away on the Colombian hills never to be caught again. He followed his cousin from a distance till Palomo died for exhaustion in the Hacienda Mulaló and promised to fulfill his deathwish which he promptly forgot and carried on happily ever after.

This paintng will be displayed in my new exhibition 'Coincidences' in Taichung, Taiwan this coming May. News will follow.
