I like to find art for each show based on some event in my life from the previous week. The only event that seemed dramatic enough for art was a cockroach. I thought “why not?” and as I typed in the word I got the heebie-jeebies. I hit enter and not one painting of the pest appeared. I was relieved. But what did show up was a painting of a blue horse and it caught my eye.
Franz Marc - Blue Horse
I went looking for more artists and their Blue Horses. Then I went looking for more Blue Horses. Here is what I found.
* Blue Horse was an Oglala Lakota warrior, a Statesman, and an Educator. In March of 1897 Blue Horse accompanied Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show to London. He traveled with the show from 1886 to 1904.
Blue Horse - Elbridge Ayer Burbank
* Blue Dun is a horse color. Notice the stripe.
* Blue Roan is horse color. No stripe.
Then there is Blue Horse Kona Coffee.
