"Flying Solo"

"Flying Solo" 
5" x 7" 
Watercolor 2014 

The first painting of the year. I took the photo I used as reference back in 2009 at the end of a nine day horse trek of riding about 185 miles through the mountains with other riders. After horse trek, when I worked at Philmont Scout Ranch, I learned how to pack horses (and burros!). You really need to balance the load so that it's not lopsided. If the panniers aren't riding straight, you can really sore up a horse in a hurry.
