It seemed fitting to paint the horses with the colors of the American flag considering the title and considering that I am very much a patriot to my country. The horse in the back is Justice because he has his eyes covered. The Greek statue for justice wears a blindfold so she cannot see the bribes being offered to her. This is my version of blind justice.
The horse in the foreground represents peace. Peace and justice are side by side and beget freedom and nothing represents the power of freedom like unbridled horses running.
The red background has a subtle texture to it created by using Saran Wrap. Click on the picture to view through the green high Res box.
The red is a Daniel Smith acrylic color called Venetian Red. When I saw the paint can, I immediately grabbed it. No worries about having a whole quart of this fabulous color. I will use it frequently.
For canvas prints, I recommend continuous sides or black sides.
