Little Red

This little unicorn is one of my favorites.  Oil on canvas.  This little guy was painted as a gag gift for my mentor, David Christiana, during my last semester of college.  Several of my 'viscomrades' and I decided to paint red unicorns in the moonlight for him as a parting "thank you" gift.  What made it funny was because he hates unicorns (says they're too cliche) and he always warned us to pay careful attention to how colors change/get muted in moonlight.  (Red being one of the more difficult colors to paint in moonlight.)  Hence, the birth of the red unicorn in the moonlight.  We'll miss you, David!
