Art Painting Kid on a Rocking Horse

Posted by NikH

This painting was inspired by a Flannery O’Connor short story about a child in the attic.

Art painting of a child in the attic playing with an old rocking horse. The kid is in melancholic darkness and she seems to be alone. Lonely?

I was experimenting with film noir style of painting for a change. It is quite an interesting venture.
