SHOW: Art of War

Perhaps the bravest and hardest working element of war time, the fearless horse.

To create this painting, I used heavy texure to depict the raw, unforgiving elements. Acrylic paints in a firey red, and rich gold where used to give the impression of fire, the burning desire to conquer and carry his rider to victory.

Horses in warfare as defined in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Horses have been used in human warfare for millennia, probably since the time of domestication of the horse. Horses were specially trained for a variety of military uses, including battle, individual combat, reconnaissance (scouting), transport, and supply. Technically, the term war horse usually refers in general to horses used for fighting, whether as cavalry in battle or in individual combat. The best-known war horse was the destrier, ridden by the knight of the Middle Ages. However, even horses used for purposes other than direct combat played a critically important part of successful military ventures. There are still some uses for horses in the military even in today's modern world.
