I was blessed to witness these beautiful horses as I drove down a dirt road in Wyoming. I got out of the car and marveled at the beautiful horses, almost swimming through grass that was so tall they didn't even have to bend their heads to graze. They just snatched mouthfuls as they steadily moved on, disregarding my presence as they would a deer or any other natural element in their landscape. There were no fences in sight. I took a deep breath and allowed the miracle of their presence, and the warm summer wind, to erase the miles I had traveled.
Later, when I returned to my studio, I was inspired to expand that feeling of the horses swimming in a sea of grass into a concept of other animals and elements of nature in rhythm. I created a series of three paintings, the horses grazing in a sea of grass, a pod of orcas swimming in the sea, and a flock of sandhill cranes flying in the air, all moving through space with similar grace.

"In Rhythm" Set of 3 prints
"The horses drift
through a deep sea of grass
windblown like waves
from whic . . orcas surface
and spout into air
pressed by . . . wings of cranes
each life in rhythm
for one moment in time."
