Wild Horses, Beauty and Inspiration

Wild horses serve as a continual inspiration for my work. The freedom, beauty and bonds they have is part of what I want to communicate in each painting.

The feel of nature and the atmosphere also helps set the mood and feeling in the painting. As the sun began to set, I stood and watched as a band of horses slowly made their way over the ridge. This was at the end of a very full day of painting, photographing and observing them. At one level I wasn't tired in the least, but rather filled with joy and inspiration for the blessing they bring to my life.
