This artwork shows different kinds of balance: the balance of nature, of sky and earth, of color, and of light and dark. The woman standing on her toes on top of the horse’s back is balancing herself physically. The moon on the background makes the artwork balanced even though it also makes it asymmetrical. The balance in this painting represents a natural peace and calmness. The work was inspired following a trip to the Southwestern United States.
