Hi Kerry & VMRS! Oh...Another one of your own Centaur ideas, Eh.?
Personally I don't like slave paintings. BUT if the Centaur searched the area for 2 lost city girls. Whose horses bolted away by snakes, while the girls were having a picnic in the hills of Ithica one day.
Maybe he is leading the girls to the City in the background for the reward by the Family or Ithica citizens. A good Centaur tracker.
The girls might have Grecian style White dress wardrobe(Like the Goddess Diana) and Leather laced calf thong/slippers on. He COULD have them on his lower back, but them walking is OK! I think they should be tied at the waist while he walks them slowly home. Not Slaves.
On his back when they get tired. He would have a waist pouch with water & one with Jerky if they get hungry or thirsty! Maybe the smaller girl is about 13 and the one further back is about 16.
These are my first takes on your new painting, Kerry! Let me know what you think! It IS looking very nice! Till you have new updates on this, Ill be watching! Sincerely, chiron22--Don Kephart
