    'Caballo Azul' ('Blue Horse) (date not specified) by José Parra. Oil on canvas. 60.96 x 43.18 cm (24 x 17 in). Part of a chess-themed series of works. Contemporary artist. // Artist commentary on this work: The hands of the lady mimic the moves of the horse on the game board. A white horse is reflected on the lenses of her glasses - probably her next attack. // Artist commentary on his general artistic philosophy: Painting is a mental and spiritual exercise. The process is finished when it's observed by the viewer, then the circle is complete. To me, painting describes the world of ideas, that's the reason behind these fantastic characters and places that might be a reflection of ourselves in an ideal world, rather than being an accurate mirror. A world poured on a canvas is not only a representation - it exists. // The reason this charming painting is in the Random Magic Tour collection rather than the Fantasy + Surrealist collection is because of the larger-than-life chess game in the book 'Random Magic' by Sasha Soren, with all of its outlandish characters and colors. This could easily be a snapshot from those wild scenes. The chess game is mentioned briefly in this review at The Fluidity of Time: 'The whole chess game (described in exciting and fascinating detail) is somewhat ominous...': // Found by @RandomMagicTour ( - Sasha Soren

'Lady of the Hurricane' (date not specified) by Michael Cheval. Materials and dimensions not specified. Limited edition prints (100) available at artist site. Contemporary artist. // Notes: This portrait is in the Random Magic Tour collection rather than under Fantasy and Surrealism, because of the visual personification of the ocean; she's cast as a living, feeling entity in the novel 'Random Magic' (by Sasha Soren), as well.
