Arizona Ethereal by Linda Briesacher
Oil 16 x 20
 
This is a Salt River Arizona wild stallion. Photographer Gary Odell captured him with his camera among the desert flora of the river bottom. What really struck me was the light and how it played upon the foliage. It gave the entire scene a very ethereal fell and I did my best to try to capture that in paint. When this painting is sold the proceeds will be donated to the Salt River Management Group to be used for the safety and protection of the wild horses who live there.

Good job Linda. Since you love horses, my family owns 600 acres on the Pryor mountains here in northern Wyoming. The Spanish mustangs run free on our land and the mountain, about 140-180 head. The Spanish blood line is slowly fading away but still some left. Enjoy your work keep painting.

Thank you Randy Burke! I am envious of where you live. I am very familiar with the Pryor Mountain horses. I would love to see photos. I will check to see if you have a FB page. Thank you!!

Biography
Thanks so much for visiting my page.  I am glad you are here.  Since you've stopped by I am guessing that you are a fan of horse art, or wild horses, or both!  The first thing you should know is that I am passionate about wild horses.  They are beautiful, majestic, fierce, gentle, family oriented, and in danger of vanishing forever.   That is a thought I find completely unacceptable.  And, that's why I paint wild horses and donate the proceeds from the sales of my paintings to support the groups who work to protect and keep them safe.  Simple as that.
 
I'd like to be able to tell you about my extensive art career, but I can't.  I started painting at the age of 60, when I retired.  I started by taking lessons at a local gallery.  Most of the rest of what I have learned has been through, well, just painting.  I have loads of books and I follow many, many artists whose work I admire.  I try to learn through seeing and reading, but honestly, I think I have learned the most through just painting.  I paint a lot -- most days, and sometimes many hours a day.  Retirement is nice in that it gives me the freedom to do this.  I paint mainly in oils now, though I have painted in acrylics.  I attempt to capture the essence of these majestic wild creatures in my work, and hopefully, create awareness about their plight. 
You will start noticing some western art mixed in with the horses.  I love western art and have collected it for years.  I thought it was high time I tried my hand at producing some of my own.  I will still donate the lion's share of the sales proceeds from these paintings to support the horses.
 
So, please take [...]
