It was a long winter. My beloved Dad died, after a difficult final battle. The weather was atypically cold and dreary. The eldercare for both of my parents was, at times, exhausting. During that time, I would look through my photo library for inspiration; any kind of inspiration. I did find inspiration there, in old photos of more lighthearted times, photos of our children when they were young and carefree, bucolic summer vacations, and photos of the wildlife I love so much. There was one particular photo, though, that stood out and I knew it was time to paint my version of it. The photograph depicted an old hand and his horse, at the end of a hard day. Both were weary and ready for rest. The long light of late afternoon shafted across a meadow and illuminated both of them in soft, bright warmth. Their quiet, trusting relationship was evident. At the end of a long, hard day, they had each other.

I photographed a horse roundup outside of Cortez in May. There was one horse who simply wouldn't behave! She was everywhere she wasn't supposed to be, in spite of every attempt to wrangle her into going along with the herd. She simply ran for the pleasure of running, even if it was in cloud of the cowboy's curses! I liked her! I'll paint her again!
