Taming a Wild Heart

Living in Oklahoma has given me appreciation for Western Art.  It’s not a form you see much of in NY where I’m transplanted from.

Taming a Wild Heart

©2013 Debi Coleman

The rodeo horses (where the reference photos for this piece originated) never cease to amaze me.  They are so angry that anyone dare to try to sit on their back that they will practically destroy themselves trying to throw the interloper fast and hard on the ground in the rodeo ring.  I’ve seen them get all four feet off the ground and land on their gut in sheer rage.  The heart of this horse is only resistant, not raging (perhaps because of the restraining rope).  Hope you enjoy.
