The year is already racing by too fast. I have signed on to too many projects. Many of them due this month, MARCH! Not one to say ‘no’ to opportunity, of course I said ‘yes’. If I should fall behind with my blog will you keep following?
This pastel painting was based on my photographs taken at a photographer’s horse drive near Sisters, Oregon. Wilma invited me to go along, knowing I wasn’t a photographer, but a painter at the time. The cowboys would herd the horses toward us so we could capture the imagery of running horses with clouds of dust. I can still hear the thundering sound of hooves pounding towards me.
