Miss Priss

A local equestrian and equine photographer from Castle Rock wanted to have the beauty of her liver chestnut mare, Miss Priss, captured in oils. The source photographs were taken when Miss Priss was in her prime. Although she is "seasoned" in her senior years, she is still captivating. I was privileged to visit Miss Priss in the open mesa pastures above Castle Rock on a cool fall day while discussing the details for the painting with her owner.
