Original acrylic and silver leaf on 24 x 48 inch canvas, 2023.
Inspiration for the western collection comes from growing up at a barn during summer breaks in my elementary school years. Waking up to go take care of your horse, learning and respecting one another, then coming together to have a good ride or good show. To this day every time I see a farm or pasture filled with animals I get thrown back to those days - smell the hay, the noise of getting your tack and the feel of a horses nose in the palm of my hand.
“Like a wild horse her heart, runs free. Unbridled and untamed.” - JL MacDougall
