About this project
No matter where you live, you can follow the adventure as I camp out on the Range and paint wild horses and the landscape they live in from life. If you have never had the experience of seeing America's icon in person, here is your chance to travel with me and see the beauty, and freedom of wild horses. Painting from life is one of the most challenging and energizing ways to capture the color and life of a subject. I want to smell the desert sage, feel the wind, hear the thunder of hooves and put all of that in these paintings.
With over 45,000 wild horses in short and long term holding, I feel an urgency to get out on the range and see and paint as many as I can. The opportunity to watch family bands and competitor stallions interact is the story I want to record to build a body of work to fill hearts and homes with Wild Horse paintings.
My painting process involves painting field studies from life. These small color studies, along with photographs, are what I base my large studio paintings on.
I need your help to get out of the studio and onto the range. Rewards for your support come in the form of original art and the opportunity to share my adventure. I will purchase painting and photography supplies as well as gas for the trip. If you live along my route, sign-up for the opportunity to meet me along the way.
Please see the current issue of Horses in Art magazine for a feature story about me painting wild horses from life. Also, visit the Pearce Museum to see my wild horse paintings in the Western Artists of America exhibit.
Thank you for your support, and please tell a friend about this opportunity to own an original painting!
