Megan’s original laying horse oil pastel on burlap artwork, Turbin, features a white horse laying in the crispy cool lighting of a Colorado winter day. The image conveys a knowing comfort despite the cool conditions – an expression of tranquility in surviving the harsh cold of winter for the coming warmer days of spring sunshine. With a beautifully white thick winter coat, Turbin lies comfortably while warming within a brief burst of sunshine – reflecting the light purple tones on an overcast winter day. Turbin was the long-time horse of Megan’s personal friend – with the image captured from a private pasture in the high mountains near Nederland, Colorado.
