There is so much about the West that I love and love to paint—the natural abstract designs of the landscape, for one. And of course the linear qualities of fences and corrals have always fascinated me. I get a buzz from the great patterns of shape and color created when a group of animals crowd together. Still, my favorite icon and subject of the West has to be horses. I’ve been around them all my life. This painting is just another reflection of my love for them.
