The wild horses at McCullough Peaks are absolutely stunning! Their large bones and rugged handsome build are very classical in appearance. While I was there, I watched a small group of bachelor stallions playing. I am always slightly amused by how unconcerned the other horses are that are not involved in the play. They continue as if nothing is happening. Then I realize how exciting it is for me to be there watching. This became the inspiration for "Above the Earth". I also made a short video of these horses for you to enjoy and see a bit of the paintings progress.
