The photo shows the blue much brighter than it actually is. It's more of a dark midnight blue.
TWO LEFT FEET
This is about stupidity, dullness and how, especially if it is our own, we are blind to it. (By the way, the main figure actually has two right feet, not two left feet.) The main figure hasn't a clue why he can't mount the horse, even though he is holding the limbo bar that stops him. The horse knows why and gives us that knowing look that says, “I can't believe this guy is so stupid.”
Took the original photo for this on a recent Sunday morning with my iPhone camera. There's also an interesting video I'll post later but that's all about eye movement.
I believe that humanities major talent is making symbols. We have been this way since the beginnings of our existence as a race. It is the reason we have a written language, music, painting, sculpture, dance, mathematics, the sciences and our entire civilization. This is the cornerstone of what it is to be a thinking human being. My painting, mixed media and digital works are his explorations into the creative spirit.
