The Hunt by PinkParasol The Hunt by PinkParasol
"The Hunt"
8"x10"
oils on canvas
July 2012

Details: [link]

In medieval and renaissance times, they said that in order to catch a unicorn you had to use an innocent young girl to lure the unicorn out of hiding. It would momentarily forget it was a wild animal, and lay in the maiden's lap, allowing for the hunters to trap it.

I wanted to illustrate an instance where someone didn't want to give the unicorn to its captures, and instead hid it to keep it safe, preserving the innocence of both involved.

Beautiful concept, and great execution. The result is a classical portrait, with a dash of originality...
I had to fave it, after my daugther saw it:
- "Dad, look, it's me holding that baby unicorn..."
- "But, honey, you have no blue eyes..."
- "But, daddy, those are my curls... And is so cuuute"
- (Smiling) "All right, all right, I hadn't seen the curls."

I can't think of a superlative that would do this justice. I wish I could paint like you.

Honestly one of the most beautiful pieces of art I have ever seen in my life. And I've seen alot. The innocence and purity of it all evokes an emotion in me that nothing else ever has. Outstanding, fantastic work.

I'm not that great, but your's is awesome! Job well done.
I work with acrylic, but have never tried oil. I believe oil gives greater results. Maybe I'll look into it.

Her eyes are very haunting. And the unicorn is very cute. And I also notice the excellent candle in glass--great lighting.

I absolutely love this. My favourite style paintings are set in the period you've shown here, and the detail work and mythical element. It's just absolutely fantastic. I honestly want the original to hang on my wall! Gorgeous.
