Painting Wild Horses, a Labor of Love

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.
Although I paint many subjects, painting Wild Horses  is a labor of love.  They inspire me like nothing else dose, and I am blessed to know they are admired by so many other people.  So often I read about people who would love to go and see wild horses. The images of them running and being part of their family bands have a great appeal. I hope my paintings can reach those that are not able to travel and see them, and bring into their lives and homes what it feels like to see America's Wild Horses, our icons of Freedom. This painting expresses that as simply and honestly as I can.

A great painting! I'm a words person so love reading about them - just reread for the umpteenth time Silver Brumby's Daughter - about wild horses in Australia.

I'd love to see them some day!
