They say that Horsemanship is a "Thinkers" endeavor. I believe that painting is too. It seems that I spend more time in thoughtful consideration of my horsemanship and painting than I do of the actual activity. I find that as I strive to really "see" and "feel" the source of inspiration in my painting subjects, that I have a stronger connection with them. I am working on a series, "Among the Mustangs", for an upcoming show. It is inspired by the time I got to spend with Gene Praag observing one of Utah's Wild Horse herds. One of the aspects I want to share through my paintings is the life and light that I saw in that herd. Spending time remembering the feelings I had while watching the herd, has drawn me closer to the core of what I want to express in this series. Awe of the Beauty, the peace and power, the quiet harmony and inherent risks in nature, are some of those feelings. I hope that you enjoy this series, please contact me for further information about this series, or a specific painting.
