I try to make every picture tell a story, I think it has to say something to somebody to be of any worth, you know !
Take care my friend !

I could tell you stories but that's not why we're here. I have to admit I prefer unicorns to bicephal mounts,lol.

Great concept, Marcel! your painting conveys a story very well, I get the feeling of the stage or an opera here, stepping into a world of enchantment, beautiful!

What a thought-provoking piece, Marcel! I never thought of life quite this way ( with the two-headed horse that is ). I do agree that life is sure capricious and sometimes pulls us along willy nilly!

The double headed horse is an allegory of life, , you can ride it and hope it takes you where you want it to but destiny (life) seems to have a mind of it's own. The rider faces towards his hopes and dreams, he has to be determined but that's not always enough. On one side you have mother luck playing a sweet melody but on the opposite side a mysteriously deceptive lady lurks.May your ride get you where you wanna go, my friend!
