Grazing for Two

6 x 6 in, oil on gessoboard

I went to Bristol Flat with a couple of artist friends to paint plein air for the first time of this year. We met the property owners and got permission to paint in the field. They raise and breed farm animals, including paint horses. I thought this paint horse was grazing for two, including her baby in her belly. Later, I was told that these mother horses just look pregnant all the time.
