Moon Shadow

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

 " Moon Shadow" is one of my own characters, as I have always been fascinated with tales of the Bedouin Tribes and the breeding of their horses.  I was inspired by the literary, magical character, the Black, from " the Black Stallion " stories, and other equine characters such as Bucephalus, the horse of Alexander the Great.   Moon Shadow is a spirit horse, a horse that can cross through the ethereal realm to find the spirit of those that are lost, either missing or dead, or connected in a romantic way but unable to be together.  The unique aspect of this piece is that it is rendered using a reverse grisaille technique with white pencil on black paper. The horse head is the paper, and everything else is colored around it.  This piece is currently being exhibited at the local public library along with my other piece, " Freyja and Svadilfari".  Please visit me at
