The three dimensional, iridescent, rich quality of the print and clean presentation of the plexiglass with no frame is a contemporary look and feel juxtaposed to the raw and wild nature of these majestic creatures.

Because prints are very fragile, they shouldn't be stored in the tube for extended periods of time. Make sure to open the package within 24-48 hrs of receiving it and take it to a professional framer as soon as possible for opening and archival dry mounting. Handling your large print yourself could result in wrinkles or tears. In the unlikely event of damage, please see policy HERE.
FRAMING: It is not uncommon for prints to have a strong curl to them when first unrolled. Discuss with your professional framer about dry-mounting your print, using archival materials only, to ensure it will remain flat once framed.
PLACEMENT: All artworks should not be placed in direct sunlight to avoid any fading over time.
ABOUT THE PIECE
SALT WELLS, WYOMING, 2011
For years I had wished on all my adventures out with the wild herds of finding a gorgeous wild grey mustang. This trip in particular, it was something I really wanted ...thinking we were winding down the day, driving on a dirt road, sun dropped behind a somewhat dark ominous cloud, mist starting in the air...we climbed a small hill and there he was in the middle of the dirt road, standing strong with his head turned back to us. Not frightened. Noble. Proud. Strong. He took me with him, literally showing me his herd of all grey mares with their yearlings and foals on one side of the road, then every so gracefully and confidently walking to the otherside of the road and out onto a plateau of rocks that over looked his valley. He was not bothered with my presense at all, just took me on a journey with him. Salt Wells HMA covers over 1 million acres and was stripped of 2100 wild horses by helicopter just eleven months prior to my visit. He had every reason to flee from me. Wildness Matters.
