I found out this morning that today, April 15th, is World Art Day. So I thought I better get my artistic self together, and write a post Celebrating Wild Horses in Art for #worldartday.
The horses all by themselves are artistic. Flowing manes, lots of movement, plenty of chances for good artistic photography. I do like to push the artistic end of my photos sometimes, and create something unique.
Leading Lines is the prompt this week for the Dogwood 52. The category is creative, but it could also be composition.
Leading lines in photography, or any type of art, means exactly what it says. You want to guide the viewers eye to a specific spot, and create a sense of direction. Here is my submission for this weeks prompt.
The Valley of Fire provided me with so many opportunities to practice this idea.
It feels like we have been stationary in Utah forever, and ever. As you know, this is were we have to be to get work done. We are getting ever closer to selling the shop here though, so that will change everything.
But today thankfully, it’s time to hit the road. Our first art show of the summer is in Ketchum, Idaho over the 4th of July weekend. (a list of all our shows can be found here)
We will have about a week in Idaho before we need to be in Sun Valley, so we are going to do a bit of exploring. Idaho is a fabulous state for boondocking. There are so many beautiful places to be, that are completely free. Our plan is to find the wild horses near Challis, hopefully boondock there a day or two, then head over to the Sawtooth mountains. We stayed in the Sawtooth area a couple years ago, and loved it. We stumbled on a boondocking spot that year, and that is were we plan on going again.
This is a photo I took that year of Hells Roaring Creek. Such a gorgeous spot, and I’m excited to go again.
