Michael Caines at Katharine Mulherin



A wild and mysterious adventure: El Dorado by Michael Caines.
If you have the time to stroll on Saturday afternoon and take in some art, drop by Katharine’s gallery.

El Dorado is the lost City of Gold, the thing that is sought endlessly but which may not be found or even exist, like true love, heaven, happiness, success. In this series of drawings and paintings, one cowboy saves another from drowning, initiating a tender companionship. As they set out on their wanderings they encounter a wolf costumed as a rabbit, a hanged man who returns from the dead, and a murder of shape-shifting crows. The nature of the cowboys’ quest remains mysterious, perhaps even to them, as do the intentions of the peculiar creatures they encounter.

    the illustration and detail of these paintings is great. I have not been to Katherine’s gallery, but I need to go soon. I look forward to more paintings that finish the story of the cowboys.
