Here are a couple new pieces of my favorite subject of late, the mustang. I never tire of painting them and look forward to another visit with them this coming year, either at the Sand Wash Basin or another Herd Management Area.
One of many white stallions at the Sand Wash Basin watering hole. I believe this is Whiteout, the first mustang I saw there. He is head of a small bachelor band and had let the young stallions drink before him, standing guard as another larger band left the area.
"Canyon Ridge Trail"
Another painting of Whiteout heading to the Sangre de Cristo Invitational of Colorado the first of 2014. The landscape of the Sand Wash Basin is quite varied, from sage and pinon tree spotted slopes to high bluffs and canyons. It provides the wild horses that inhabit the area plenty of natural terrain to keep them healthy, hooves trimmed and muscles toned.
