I Dream of the Pale Horse

I Dream of the Pale Horse

Composite from a room I photographed at the Trans Allegheny Insane Asylum and the chair and bed were in the room.  The vintage image I downloaded from Mementomori on DeviantArt.  I colorized and retouched the image.  The beautiful piebald horse in the background is from the beautiful “Piebald Horse”  by Paulus Potter a Dutch painter and is an oil on canvas from the period between 1625 and 1654 which is in the Open Access program at the Getty Museum of Art. I just wanted a very dreamlike feeling to the image.  The ghost of someone from the past sitting in this room.

  1. Great composition….interesting that the chair was still in the room and reasonably intact after all these years. Very soothing.
