This painting was created after I met my friends two horses for the first time. Esther and Tank, Tank was older and infirm, and Esther guided him everywhere. Yu can see her here leading the way back to the barn after a day in the field. Their level of companionship, compassion, and deep affection so touched me that, without sketching, landing, or even having considered creating a work based on this experience, that is exactly what I did upon returning to the studio. It remains one of my favorite pieces.
