THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The horse depicted in the Equus painting provides a touching glimpse into the tenderness of human nature. A historic companion to humans both in work and in play, the horse symbolizes liberation and life without apology. Soto captures the essence of human nature--love--in the colors he uses to compose this art piece. Natural and deep yet still passionate, red makes up the majority of the color in the horse's mane, but one of the strands has been painted in pink. The horse appears forlorn, marking the way that love can make its way into our being and cause sadness as easily and as naturally as it can cause bliss.
