He’s a big, powerful horse, and stunningly beautiful. 15 years old, 1325 lbs. and 15.2 hands. I’m told he’s a gentleman, but that he took his job seriously in the arena.

Casper Nights

Wyoming is a great place for artists to travel and let the landscape capture the imagination. Under the immense moonlit sky at night, are these towering rocks the ruins of ancient cities? Or just tiny anthills? When perspective shifts, the mind expands, and this work is just one of the results. Price: $175 Media: Oil […]
