"If you are walking on a path and not kicking up dust, then you are not walking on a path."
Visiting a wild horse sanctuary and watching the horses race around, kicking up enormous clouds of dust, I noticed that when the sunlight glowed through the dust cloud, the shadows of the running horses were captured as if on a screen.
There was no reason for the horses to run other than we were there watching and they didn't mind showing off.

Every now and then someone will send me an image, usually a sky, that strikes them in a particular way, and ask me to paint it. I'm happy to do that when the subject is already aligned with what I have set out to do. The painting above is one such painting, with a few details added from my imagination.
