There Goes the Neighborhood

We don't have cable or satellite - just regular TV. There's not much to my liking on the major networks. Usually the local PBS station has enough interesting informative shows, though. And we rent DVD's from Netflix.
Recently I watched a repeat of a documentary I love - "Cloud, Wild Stallion of the Rockies". A fabulous nature photographer, Ginger Kathrens, has followed a particular stallion named "Cloud" and his family for a number of years now. The image of a mountain on fire stayed in my head and I painted this today.
It was rumored that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was going to try and remove most of the wild horses from Montana and Nevada, but I never could find any record of it. A quick search of "what happened to Cloud" reveals nothing either. Losing the wild mustang herds would be a sad loss....

For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.”

Hi Debbie - I remember seeing this documentary some time ago and was also moved and inspired by it. The photography was breathtaking. Your painting is a lovely tribute to these magnificent wild horses.

Wonderful tribute to Cloud. The whole BLM thing is definately a hot issue these days.
