Inspiration

INSPIRATION
A ride down to the Snake River with my husband.

Most recently I have been inspired by the beautiful horses in the area, especially those at the Jackson Hole Horse Rescue where I volunteer.

It’s a privilege to spend time with these beautiful creatures and paint and sketch them. And ride them. Though honestly I think I would rather sit out in the pasture with my sketchbook surrounded by horses. Though we did have a wonderful ride down to the Snake River the other day (photo above). Still, if I could do only one or the other, I would choose sketching and painting them.

Somehow their beauty is felt more when I’m concentrating on capturing their form.
