Original Acrylic Artwork by Oklahoma Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy


"Seduction"

Spring is just around the corner; I think of pastels, bright floral colors, , new growth, new beginnings. My stallions call to the mares, and even the mares cuddle and show affection when in heat. Part of the dance for mating is the wooing, and this painting shows just that. I viewed being approached by a suitor similarly, with attraction yet caution. I also used color symbolically, pink for the ladies, blues and yellows for the guys, orange is for optimism. Painted in acrylics on a 24"x24"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas. I've called it "Seduction", it will be entered in a competition so not currently available.
