Horses Wet and Wild 2 – Work in Progress

This painting is about 30″ x 50″. Over the years Banana Bank had had many outstanding horses and so my dream was to do a painting with the best ones running together in a large herd. They are coming out of the river in the area of the Sandy Bay. I was determined to get 60 horses in the composition and I think there should be 60. We do not have any paints in our herd. Most are quarter horse and thoroughbred. I am doing my best to make the horses in the painting resemble the actual horses, some from the past and some still alive. The 12 or so horses to the left of the picture are not finished but I hope within a month’s time I have completed this piece. The rider closest is my husband John. I haven’t finished that yet. The one further back is going to be miss Patricia Shaw. I will change that rider to resemble her. This painting has been a challenge.
