After the Ride - sunset horse painting

8 X 6 Oil on board $115
I was thumbing through a book of Remington paintings yesterday and was inspired by the colors in "Against the Sunset".
Frederic Remington was born in 1861, but died prematurely in 1909 from complications of an appendectomy. The body of work he produced is amazing - who knows what direction he would have gone had he lived longer. He romanticized the West, to be sure, but the images remain a colorful chronicle of the settlement and people who populated the territory. His horses were often exaggerated and his people charactures, but he captured the spirit and vibrancy of the West so well.
Joshua 3:5

Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you."
