This is a watercolor painting of a woman dressed as a unicorn carousel horse in a style that’s a cross between Cirque du Soleil and Erte.

Una

11×14″ print available here.

This print is called Una, because she’s an una-corn. Ow. I know. I can’t help myself.

Una is part of my Carouselle Girls series, which takes “pony girls” one step further: I painted them as carousel horses! We put animals in situations to which we’d never subject ourselves: birds in cages, lions jumping through flaming hoops. To dress women in riding tack, impaled by poles, leaping gracefully seemed a wonderful extension of this conceit. People tell me my Carouselle Girls remind them of a cross between Cirque du Soleil and Erte. That’s quite the compliment!
