A take-off on the horses in the Paleolithic paintings on cave walls at Lascaux and
Pech Merle in France, the real inspiration for this piece was Goldy, a mare whose
former owner assured me she was a fine jumper, and who displayed this unique approach
to jumping fences. The part that isn’t in the painting is the rider, me, who has
been flung off over her head, and has “jumped” the fence sans horse.
