Original horse art: This painting is based on photos taken at a horse ranch on the edge of town, next to a very popular nature park. I go by there often, but on this day the light was beautiful and so I pulled off the road to take photos.
I have painted these horses many times since then, and one of the ranch people even recognized the paintings as their horses and invited me out to meet the horses in person. That was really special! All of the horses had wonderful personalities, some playful and some reserved, most very curious.
This painting is about the way that animals and the landscape blend together in the dusk, and the beautiful light at just that magical time of evening. I hope you enjoy it!
