    I feel that it is important to accurately represent both people and horses because of their beautiful structure. Horses are strong, majestic animals and I want to convey that strength when I paint them. Brushwork, light and shadow are also extremely important in my work to place the viewer in the scene to feel the warm sun on the cowboy's face.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.
