The Dark Horse is an original oil painting by Debra Keirce. The painting measures 16″ x 20″ with the frame measuring 20″ x 24″, frame included.
Allegorical still life paintings are a joy to paint. The 17th century Dutch master artists excelled at this, and I am so inspired by their work.
Who is the dark horse in this chess game? The one that light can't pass through, the one with a confident stance? Will he or she make a move that is a game changer? Or will a simple pawn end the game for the horse?
As much as we strategize and put our best moves into the game of life, it is still unpredictable. It's anyone's game.
