Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

I wasn't very interested in this painting when I saw it but I love one spot in it and now I can't get Horsey Love out of my head. The spot is where the little pink horse and the yellow horse meet, there's an indent there in the yellow horse, the pressure of the little horse leaning on the great big horse is absolute love. It's unexpected too.
