Art: Flame - King of Azul Island by Artist Kerry Lynn Nelson
Lord of his island domain, Flame, the equine superhorse creation of author Walter Farley, gallops across a meadow in the hidden valley. Descendant of the finest horses of the Conquistadores, evolved and formed over centuries through survival of the fittest, Flame is the epitome of his kind, and fast enough, and, brave enough, to challenge the finest thoroughbred racehorses in the world! As the supreme ruler in the main island valley, Flame has had to fight for the right to lead his band of mares and his magnificent body bears the marks of his many battles! Criss-crossed from nose to tail with battle-scars, Flame bears his scars as the badge of honor of the wild stallion! I grew up reading Walter Farley's wonderful "Black Stallion" books and have on many occassions, made Mr. Farley's characters the subject of my paintings. "The Island Stallion" was one of the most memorable equine fictions and one of my all-time favorites! Painted in oils, alla prima, in bright jewel-like colors with a predominately tertiary color scheme. This original oil painting comes with a certificate of authenticity and has painted, gallery-wrapped sides so is ready to hang with or without framing. Available now.
