Abstract suggesting a merry-go-round horse. The subject is a depiction of the rather fantastic idea of the brightly colored moving horses, as perhaps seen by a young child (those carousels can be a little scary!)

I use thick versus thin lines in patterns to create a flat effect with the illusion of some depth. This mimics the environments that one sees using high magnification in a microscope, where distant objects become large and thick-lined and then disappear.
