This image is from a drawing done on site at the Litchfield, California BLM. I made the eight-hour drive to this satellite facility only to discover that the staff left early and not a soul was onsite even though I had made it there well within business hours. Under the watchful gaze of the security camera, I had the place to myself. Despite the smaller size of this facility, mustangs packed every available corral. I strode to the outer corrals and found a wild bunch that reacted to my approach by snorting, pawing and posing most elegantly for me. I stood my ground by taking a dusty seat and drawing them. This image is of one of the pack leaders in the wild outer corral bunch. Original drawing transferred to zinc plate. Etching, drypoint and softground.
