Kiger Mare and Foal III, 9″ x 12″ oil on panel, unframed.
From my summer trip to the Steens Mountain Wilderness, Kiger Mustang HMA. After we loaded the trail horses to head back to the ranch, a lone mare and foal wandered across our path. They were curious about the horses on the trailer and we were just as curious watching them back. It was a hot summer day and the light was high in the sky. My focus on this series has been Alla Prima work – meaning all at once. Capturing the moment as it happened, a brief encounter with lasting memories.
