Medium: Acrylic
Dimensions: 36"h x 36"w

"Roaming Navajo Horse " features a horse in a profile set against a backdrop with distinct color zones. The horse is centrally positioned within a square framed by a thicker yellow border. The background is divided into two horizontal sections: the lower part is a light green-blue; the upper part is a deep blue sky with a white full moon in the upper right corner. The horse itself is rendered with attention to its musculature and coat texture, giving it a realistic and tactile quality. The coloration of the horse utilizes natural browns, grays, and subtle shading that convey a sense of volume and form. The overall composition is simple, yet the contrast between the animal and the stylized background creates a serene and contemplative mood.
