Remember when I went to the branding out on Rowe Mesa? One of the fellows I met out there was a man whose bearing said, “Here's a guy to reckon with”.
I was going for a character study, as opposed to the specificity of a portrait. Of course I was also primarily interested in the idea of applying the lessons my recent abstractions have been teaching me to a figurative piece.
When our daughter Kimberly and her friend George, who were my hosts at the branding, came by to take us to dinner, they saw the painting and instantly recognized the subject. Turns out, he really is a man to reckon with. He learned from the famous Ray Hunt the art of understanding the horse, and went on to become an outstanding horseman, himself.
