THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Forlornly, what appears to be a horse stretches outward, long and thin, toward the lighter side of The Past painting, extending from a dark and terrifying place. The horse's colors have been overshadowed with the darkness behind him, and like the name suggests, the past is haunting him. As he leans in toward the lighter colors on the right of the painting, his fur becomes lighter in color as well. This seems to convey the idea that if one lingers in the past for too long, it can bring nothing but darkness--yet the future holds light and clarity.
