Artwork Description

The rim of the sun slide from behind Oceanus. Light spilled across the dunes. The Avarclon gave a low moan of despair. His eyes were dull and glazed. His flesh shrank and melted beneath the skin. Aeriel could see his bones.
'What is it?' she cried softly. 'What is happening?'
The starhorse moaned again and shuddered. 'Avaric!' he cried.
'Avaric, Avaric!'

(From 'The Darkangel' by Meredith Ann Pierce ^_^ )

This is increadible! I read that book and immediatley picked up on the quote. Thank you for doing this! Us non-artistic people yearn to draw images such as this, but can only be satisfied for others to do so. Incredible, truly.

Yet another book I want to read because of your amazing art work. I love the feathers from the horses wings, and the horse itself really. You have amazing talent. Keep up the superb work!

This is quite a disturbing piece for me. I think it's because of what's happening to my beloved unicorn. But the artistic rendition is superb: you are truly a master of visual art!! All masters can affect their audience this way. You have my admiration.

The horse is wordless.

lovely painting but you might want to include who/where the quote is from. I forget which book that one is from but its one of the Dark Angel trilogy. People like to know where the inspiration came from.

This is astonishing! I'm always interested in equestrian-themed work, but this is a quite unique and great concept, superbly rendered, totally excellent Smile
