"FIRE"

Out of the Dust by Erich Fritz

Original is a 24” x 30” airbrushed acrylic painting on Masonite. This piece was conceived due to pure frustration and anger with my life. I was in a very dark place when I came up with this. I was frustrated with my relationship with my wife and the stagnant feel to my life. I felt as if the worl was just moving on without me and I was sick of it. When I finally got this painting completed, I was in a better place and so a lot of rage that had conceived it was replaced with the need to show the power of this image. The eyes of the horse still show that empty feeling I had when first imagined, but the body is much softer and forgiving. After much thought and consideration, this would be the first in a two piece series, Fire and Ice.


"ICE"

Out of the Dust by Erich Fritz

Original is a 24” x 30” airbrushed acrylic painting on Masonite. This piece was brought to life by one of my babysitters. After completing the "Fire" piece, my friends daughter came to look at it and immediately decided that she was going to buy it. As we ride horses together every other weekend, I got to know her and her twin sister quite well. I was amazed at how similar they were yet different. Dana, the girl who wanted "Fire" was very outgoing and stubborn. Her fiery personality was the embodiment of the painting. Her sister, Leah, was much more reserved and quiet. Her personality was still warm, but cooler that her sister. The similarities and differences were the reason I used the same horse mirrored, each with it's own personality. Like two sides of the same coin.
