I intended this horse painting to have 2 purposes. The models I used are real mustangs with a single owner and while I wanted to honor her mustangs, I also wanted to tell a new story. While there’s the real story of these three, my made up story is that these boys are all part of the same wild band, and they’re meeting and discussing, perhaps the topic of succession since most wild stallions would rather fight than discuss anything, or be a part of the same band for long. Usually the stallions are cast out once they reach a certain age to start a family of their own.

ABOUT THIS HORSE ART
The main exploration here was to push the boundaries of encaustic painting into the realm of an oil artist. While this is 100% painted with wax, the realism makes the viewer wonder how it could be hot wax, and not oil.
