Equine Artists Exhibit Romancing the Horse
I am pleased to participate in the Institute of Equine Artists exhibit, Romancing the Horse.
This leggy young Thoroughbred colt was turned out with his mother and other mares and foals on a ranch in Larkspur, Colorado. If his nose wasn't down nibbling the tender new spring grass, it was in my camera lens or over my sketch book. He was a scamp, more interested in what I was up to than playing with his pasture friends.
A group of riding friends and I spent a weekend in Fraser, Colorado with our horses. At dawn on Saturday morning I caught this beautiful image of Gary Wilson's Tennessee Walker gelding, PK, warming up in the arena before heading out on trail. He "thundered" just past me, hooves pounding, and I caught a seriesphotos I was able to reference for this painting. It was a rare and fleeting moment when the lighting was perfect and the moment memorable.
