This painting "Run Free" is a tribute to the remaining wild mustangs in the west. Its a beautiful sight to behold; horses running across the open expanse of the horizon, just because they feel like it.
Its a beautiful painting, with strong bold movement. The base of the paintings is laid down using a palette knife, allowing for the strong impressionistic movement. For me paintings with a palette knife is like sculpting, chiseling away, reveling the the subject. I use brush work to further define the details of my painted "sculpture", using colors to play with the eye of the viewer by choosing unexpected colors next to each other.
If you are interested in a particular commission, or subject matter please email me to start a conversation. Together we can bring a creative idea to life.
"Run Free" was created during my time on the ranch outside of Santa Fe, NM. in 2010
