THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Loyalty, friendship and love are embodied in this striking Confraternidad painting. Confraternidad is a Spanish word that means fellowship or fraternity. In this painting, the artist has used the images of several different colours and types. Each of these horses faces different directions to the left or to the right. The varying colours of these beasts indicate the unique personalities and backgrounds that each human comes from, while the directions in which they are looking suggest the possession of differing opinions. Even so, this painting conveys the idea that no matter what one believes, we can all live together as family.
