Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


Masterpiece usually refers to a work of art. My first (35 yr.) career was as an artist and I loved the work of making art. I understand the concept that a single piece might be special, but to me the artist’s real masterpiece is their entire body of work. Each work informs the others, the experience is more rich when experienced as a family of work.

When I retired my studio, I told disappointed galleries and clients to consider it only a change of media to work with horses. There are technical skills required, but on a creative level, it demands so much more from the human to collaborate with an artist/horse. This is a photo of that “media’, the masterpiece is the life shared.

WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone. No psych, definitely not high-tech.

This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.
