Picasso, a Wild Horse Icon

Wild Horses, Portraits of Freedom 
 As a result of my trips out to visit the wild horse herds in AZ, CO and NM, I am doing a series of small portraits. My goal is to give an intimate glimpse into individual horses and my visual and emotional response to their beauty. The paintings are on cradled wood, so they can be easily hung or placed as freestanding art. Shipping, (with in the continental U.S.) is free.
This painting depicts Picasso and his family.  Picasso is one of the most easily recognized wild horses on the Sand Wash Basin range and on the internet. This Spring, Picasso and his mare, Mingo had a filly called Mimi. When I first saw this band I was so excited to see a new Picasso filly. This painting shows the tenderness and protection that Picasso and Mingo exhibited as I watched them.
