Three Horses: The Story of This Painting

Three Horses graze peacefully in the warmth of the sun in Steve Henderson’s original oil painting, Three Horses, available at the Steve Henderson Fine Art website.

The story of the painting, Three Horses, by Steve Henderson at Start Your Week with Steve:

There is always a sense of, “All is right with the world,” when you pass by a group of horses grazing in a meadow.

The pace is relaxed, stately, sedate. On a sunny day, the horses move in and out of the shadows, following the greenery at the same time that they keep a loose eye on one another. This is group activity at its best: each individual focused on his task, while simultaneously aware of the presence of others.

Three Horses takes place in the Salmon River Mountains of Idaho, an untamed, wild area of the west where people still ride their horses. There are ranches, farms; down near the river skillful rafters lead tourists over whitewater rapids. In a similar attitude to the horses, individuals live their lives, focused on their businesses and families, while keeping an eye out for one another.

Serenity, quiet, peace, and reflection are favorite themes explored by Steve Henderson in his artwork. Shades of Turquoise, original oil painting at Steve Henderson Fine Art, 12 x 12.

Stillness. Quiet. Space. We all need these elements operating in our lives, but in the hustle and hurry of modern life, where our phones keep track of our every move, we can get through an entire day sometime without stopping and listening to . . . nothing. Three Horses takes us to a peaceful place where we can close our eyes, feel the sunlight on our face and the breeze in our hair, and hear the soft whoosh of a horse as it moves from one nibble to the next.

Three Horses is available as an original oil painting at Steve Henderson Fine Art. Its compact size, 9 x 12 before framing (the frame is included in the purchase and results in a finished hanging size of 12 x 15), means that it fits anywhere, either tucked into an alcove, or prominently displayed on a wall all to itself. Its reasonable price means that you can afford an original painting, even if you have never bought one before.
