The Gathering - The yearling pen

The yearling pen

A trip to one of our local horse breders gave me material for a number of paintings. This painting came frome one of my favorite photos. Once I had the original of this print at a show and a man just stood and stared at it for a long time. After a while I had to ask what he was looking at. He told me he was a horse shoer and this was the first painting he had ever seen where the legs and hoofs were painted the way they really would have been. I had to confess that I wasn’t that smart, I just paint what I see.
