"Vicious Circle" was the winner of the Drawing Award at the Presbyterian Fine Arts festival in September 2014! This piece was so much fun to do as I wanted to make a statement about people who choose to demean and criticize others behind their backs. The horse in the foreground is engaging in this behavior about the carousel horse behind (or is it in front?) of him (her?) while the horse in the background is taking it in. The pole driven through the second horse's back represents the back-stabbing that occurs all too often in society and the screaming face in the background represents my frustration with people who do this sort of thing.
