Sagebrush Zain - Original Artwork

Sagebrush Zain - Original Artwork

Sagebrush Zain, 11" x 14" oil on canvas panel, framed. This painting is available through Equis Art Gallery. 

Inspired by my references of my trip to South Steens HMA, summer '23. It was getting close to midday, I was feeling the summer heat rising. I contemplated giving up on finding horses. Instead, I decided to take a small dusty road off the main path and see what I could find. I was pleasantly surprised to discover two horses grazing in a big open field. One mare, one stallion. Despite my great distance, I could tell these horses were not accustomed to seeing people. The stallion was very attuned to where I was. Slowly and carefully I maneuvered around my car with my tripod and notebook. I didn't want to scare or disturb. It's these quiet moments where I feel like it's a great gift to be able to have a window to watch, but not intrude. I worked quickly and didn't stay too long so they could enjoy their grasses in the summer sun. With that, this is the first painting in the sequence of backcountry stallion Zain.

I want to give a shout-out to the photographers on the range documenting these horses. They give range updates and horse names. It's been possible for me to connect my images and paintings to the horses by referencing their range reports. Here is a link to the Steen Mountain HMA Facebook group, in case you are also interested in following.
