My father trained horses and I was raised with as many as 25 horses in a herd. We lived in south eastern Colorado among cactus, rocks, and flat lands of high desert. Looking through old photos in a western coffee table book I found this unidentified photo that reminded me of my father. The painting is part inspired by that photo and part inspired my memories. It is 36x12 acrylic, unframed. I like how it captures the personality of the horses. I have four horses now and draw and paint horses frequently.
