Horses of the Southwest 2019

In this heavily textured series, I wanted to paint the horses in a more relaxed state. They are standing, looking around and eating. 

The colors I used are vibrant. They represent strength, confidence, and power. The wild horses of the Southwest are a symbol of freedom. These painted Horses of the Southwest are free.  They are not saddled, bridled or harnessed in any way. They are not fenced in or captive.
