This piece was inspired by the vistas in New Mexico. The title came to me when I realized that the rock formations seemed to suggest an upturned face on one side with hands on the other. It was one of those happy accidents that was not done with intent.
The latest in my "Forgotten Dreams" series of cave paintings. The multiple legs, in estimation, were to imply the movement of the pony. It is highly textured and is done in rich ochres and charcoal.
This is the largest, so far, of my "Forgotten Dreams" series of cave paintings. It is 72" x 72" x 3" and has lots of texture and movement. The spiral is a form that appears in many cave paintings all over the world.

Almost finished with another in the Forgotten Dreams Series. I recently saw a film with this extinct animal as an integral part of the film. One can find footage of the last of the "tigers" from the 1930's. They were not tigers at all. More closely related to Tasmanian Devils, they look more like a dog with a giant mouth, striped, a tail like a kangaroo and a marsupial to boot.
