Oil on canvas

The Horseman (Carrion) was inspired by certain W.H.Yeats poems and events unfolding around me.He epitomizes for me the scorched earth mentality of the winner take all, no matter what the cost.Perhaps he has his own sort of courage, but is utterly ruthless, he is a bringer of death and destruction.
