Wild Horses Running, Beauty and Power

The power and beauty of wild horses running is magnificent. Thundering hooves cresting a hill and running strait toward you as the dust begins to build behind them almost vibrates the ground.  The sound represents freedom, the sight one of unbridled beauty. Even in the midst of a full gallop the horses interact with each other in a version of high speed game of "tag". The element of fun is expressed here with a simple gesture. I hope you feel the thunder of hoves in this series of paintings based on the McCullough Peaks wild horses.
