Spirits Of Mustangs Past
About this artwork
In the wilderness of the American west, a wild pinto coated mustang stands on a grassy hill looking out into the sky where clouds in the form of giant horses drift in the afternoon sky over the prairie. A strong wind blows the paint horse's black mane and tail back as if sent by those spirits within the clouds.
This started out as an experiment to test a technique for painting shaped clouds. The technique seemed to work pretty well so I decided to create a full scene with it. In order to make sure viewers could see the shapes of the horses in the clouds, I thought I needed to put a living horse in the foreground. I went with a paint horse because its multicolored coat presented a nice contrast to the all white horses of the clouds.
