More New Work: Saving the Mustangs

And now for something totally different!

In preparation for my workshop next week at Anderson Ranch I created this new piece. I used to do a bit of graphic design and really like a graphic look but I have been honing my equine photography skills over the last year.

This will be a big piece - 75" long and has symbols and text. The goal of the workshop is to combine painting, photography, text, and whatever else we want. My goal is to start creating one-of-a-kind pieces.

When I started this the only thing I knew was that I wanted it to somehow tie into the wild mustangs. After going on a treasure hunt for imagery this is what I came up with.

This is a return to my fine art studies where we were encouraged to make work that makes a difference in the world.
