Summer 2014 Wild Horse Painting Trip

This summer had two special events during my  five week trip. In addition to my visits to Little Book Cliffs, Sand Wash Basin, McCullough Peaks and Pryor Mountain, I had a two week Artist-in-Residency at Bighorn Canyon Recreation Area. The focus of my study was the Dry Head horses that are part of the Pryor Mountain herd. Also, the Celebration of Wild Horses Through Art and Music to benefit The Cloud Foundation had it's inaugural exhibit.
