Hide and Seek ~ Bev Doolittle
Hide and Seek – “Horses are the center of the universe for me so you can imagine my delight when I came up with an idea on how to do 24 paintings of them . . . and to pose each one and give it a personality of its own.
“Paint horses were a natural choice for ‘Hide and Seek’ because of the way they lend themselves to camouflage. Besides, I wanted to celebrate the anniversary of ‘Pintos.’ Viewed separately, 23 of the 24 images are little paintings of pintos against a snow-and-rock background – a feeling reminiscent of the original ‘Pintos.’ Together, they spell out HIDE AND SEEK. Why only 23 pintos? What about the 24th painting? I thought it would be fun for people to try and find a pinto that isn’t there!”
