Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with an incredibly gifted Denver photographer by the name of Scott Wilson. Scott has captured many amazing photos of the iconic Colorado mustang, Picasso. You've probably seen his work before, but if not, let me direct you to his website, wilsonaxpe.com. There you will find many inspiring images, including the picture that I am using for my painting above, called "Picasso: Spirit of the West".
Not only was I given permission by Scott to paint this beautiful image of one of Colorado's most well-known Sand Wash Basin mustangs, but I also get to recreate it as a mural along the main street of Golden, Colorado. This work will begin this month! I'm so excited. And to bring the incredible horse alive, I thought it would be neat to have him appear as though he is leaping out of the image from the building. Something like this:
So stay tuned, because this work begins next week. And if you're driving past on Washington Street as I work on it, feel free to honk and I'll wave back to say "Hi".
