Artist Statement


Another beautiful site is watching horses crossing water as I have shown in my painting called Water Crossing. I believe that Wild horses, and the habitat in which they live, represent more than beautiful creatures roaming beautiful lands, they represent the core of our history not only here in America, but around the globe. And as we move forward into the future, acknowledging the truth of these creatures, and honoring their legacy.

My wife and I have spent over 40 years raising and training horses. So in my current series, I portray the wild horses of Missouri to bring attention to their beauty and the plight of these magnificent horses. There are property owners who are concerned about the destruction of their property when these horses run through their land. Even though horses are mostly for recreational purposes this day and age, they represent our past. The wild horses of Missouri are a legacy of their ancestors who worked hard to build this country. I can show more of a lush landscape and the beauty of the horses.
