Wild Horse Trio




Last June I had the opportunity to see one of Utah's Wild Horse herds. This was a truly amazing experience. Standing, encircled by the herd of 200 horses, observing their interaction and relationships really toughed my heart. It was peaceful and powerful at the same moment. Small groups of horses stood together, some sparred, some slept, and others moved from group to group. These two paintings are from a series I am working on of that herd. I want to get the feel, color and life that I saw in these wonderful symbols expressed through my brush strokes. I hope, that viewer's of these paintings feel the same powerful bond and peacefulness that I did while standing among them.

Thanks! They really had a profound effect on me. I've been around many horses, but not a wild herd. They were curious, yet did not approach me, and they didn't run away. The hours I spent with them went by quickly!
