"Racing the Storm-1"- 18" X 24" Pastel painting on charcoal paper.
Horses run free on the high desert of the Great BAsin region of northeastern California and Nevada where I saw many mustangs living, running, playing and surviving under harsh and many times unforgiving conditions. They worked hard at finding food, water and peace from predation by both man and other animals looking for a meal. Sometimes just seeing them in the wild running without fences to block their freedom reminds me of what my soul is all about. This piece is not framed or matted.
