This pastel is of three horses from the Shearer Ranch of South Dakota. I love watching working horses do their "thing" and these are no exception. I think everyone needs a job, whether it be a dog, horse, or person. These three know what needs to be done and they know how to do it. There was a herd of cattle that were set loose so that we could photograph them and these horses stood at attention, waiting for the signal to get to work.
I have been working on this painting for some time now, and have been interrupted by travel and commissions. I hope to have it done soon, so keep checking back as I will be updating the progress daily.
