Mixed media on Canvas, 36"x24"
In the artist's words:
"Another of the Beasts of Burden series. Sometimes a creative idea takes you down a road that isn't familiar. Having drawn and painted donkeys repeatedly, I felt that I needed to try a different approach. This time I deconstructed the canvas surface, gave the impression of the donkey using texture, then added in line. I wanted to suggest age and laps round the track of Life. I hope it gives the feeling of a 'patina', the visual effects of time. After all, we're all vulnerable to that, aren't we?"
