horse show is a gathering of sketches in pastel charcoal acrylic paint on canvas that represent form and line in the shape of the horse.
there is a connection that i find with the horse and mysticism that cover the world terrain in sunshine and in rain the blissful and the pain, an archetypal picturesque painterly quest drawn from night till dawn
a heavenly bequest.
please take a moment now to look beyond the plow, sincerely i am freed by painting every steed. part of my private collection.
starting gate is a compilation of recent works. some were painted in my mother Penny Kaplan’s studio in NYC, the excitement of the city translates to the
romantic colors and movement of the imagery-fantasy plays a major role
based on intuition and often divine intervention by my spirit guides Zeus
Juno and Apollo, they are a force of good, they help me paint write play music
on my little Yamaha piano on a daily basis-all they ever ask of me is to take
care of myself which i find is a daunting task-some of the work is in private
collections, my own collection, the collections of friends and family-some of the work may be seen at The Whiteroom Gallery, Bridgehampton NY March 16 – April 8 2018.

some of the images repeat themselves as
in the previous gallery starting gate,
yet the thematic horse imagery looms large in my psyche.
each drawing of the horse is different from the next disputing the television theme “a horse is a horse of course of course…”.
there placed in a field and/or countryside
one may be able to sense a mood or better
still an emotion captured in the image at the time of its appearance on canvas, for i have been known to be an emotional person, given to that i have my moments and i believe the paintings reflect this.
thank you to the viewer, i hope you may enjoy “all the pretty little horses…”.
