New Addition to Live ARC Salon

April 26, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Exodus by Michael C Hayes has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition.
"The title of this painting, Exodus, implies both the leaving of an old place and the wandering search that must take place before a new chapter can begin. Beyond being an amalgamation of all the elements I enjoy painting, armor, beautiful women, architecture and horses, Exodus is a very personal piece for me that represents a recent period in my life. After years of working as a commercial illustrator, I made the decision to take a leap of faith and leave that career to pursue my own artistic visions. This was a time of both fearful uncertainty as well as hope for me, and I was driven to portray those feelings through the expression and body language of the painting’s protagonist, combined with the overall mood of the piece." - Michael C Hayes
