"Tar Baby" 36" x 24" gouache painting on paper, adhered to oil painting on canvas of horse and rider
"Tar Baby" is an unfortunate name, but a necessary one. This painting is of my dad as a kid, on a horse given to him by his parents. Idyllic, right? Not so much. ;))
They purchased the horse from a "friend" and neighbor, and the sweet beast came to them with the name, "Tar Baby". I had to look up the definition, and Tar Baby defined is, " A difficult problem that is only aggravated by attempts to solve it."
According to my dad, Tar Baby lived up to his name. Still endearing nonetheless, and haven't we all had a "Tar Baby" in our lives at one point or another.
The center portion of the work is acrylic on French handmade paper, adhered to an oil painting on canvas. 36" x 24" by Colette Cosentino
