If any of you are familiar with my collection of work, then you know that I am partial to portraits of horses. They each have their own personality and their own story. The following is one of my favorites, and as it turns out, a favorite of everyone.
The Coyote Dun is my most popular-selling print to western art enthusiasts; far out-selling the others. And to the cowboy crowd, it is so popular that it appears on the outside of my good friend Chris's horse trailer, and on the back of a cowgirl as a full-blown tattoo! I can't say that I ever imagined that application when I decided to tell the Coyote's story. But there is something about his pose and bearing that captures the hearts of all who see him. I hope he speaks to you.
I visited Shawn just a couple of weeks ago and we reminisced about the Coyote Dun. It's been over 12 years since I captured his iconic image, and both mine and Shawn's paths have taken many turns. But the memories of the Coyote Dun are still as strong as the day I laid paint to paper. May he live forever!
Here's wishing you a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!
