Run Free – Original Pastel Painting

"Run Free" 14" x 18" pastel on velour

“Run Free” 14″ x 18″ pastel on velour

“Run Free” is another in my Mustang series. This is the same wild Mustang that I painted in “Born Free” as a young colt. This is Maestro all grown up as a spunky two-year-old. He’s a beautiful young stallion running free on the South Steens HMA in Central Oregon. I created this painting last August and was excited for it to be juried in last year’s Draft Horse Classic “Art at the Classic” which is one of my favorite art shows. Maestro is one of my favorite boys out in the wild and I’m hoping to be painting him again and again. In fact… I have another of his on my list for my Mustang series, which will be titled “Live Free”. Thank you to Terry W. Smith for permission to use his photo as reference.

This framed original is for sale. Frame size 18.5″ x 22.5″. $525.00 includes shipping. A portion of the sale price will be donated to the South Steen Mustangs to help keep Maestro and his family wild and free forever.




Pastel Painting – “Nature’s Gold” Original

“Nature’s Gold” is a portrait of two wild Mustangs from the Sand Wash Basin in Colorado. Known to those who follow these magnificent horses as Can Wakan & Bobby, these two are actually siblings in the wild. When I first saw the image that John Wagner posted on Facebook I had to ask permission to paint it. The tenderness of the two drew me in, and I spent my Christmas Day creating this painting. This original is for sale and I will soon have prints available. It is framed behind glass with the frame size at 22.5″ x 18.5″. Price is $495.00 plus $30 for shipping. A percentage of the sale of this painting will go towards the Sand Wash Basin Mustang advocates in hopes to help keep these wonderful horses free and wild.

A special thank you to Wild Horse Photographer John Wagner, for all the work he does to get wonderful images of the Mustangs of Sand Wash Basin. It is through his photos that I am able to stay connected with the wild Mustangs that I love so much and enjoy painting. I hope he is able to find a way to continue his work.

I give you Picasso. This is one of the most magnificent Mustang Stallions… known as the Grand Duke of the Sand Wash Basin in Colorado. It is said this stallion is in his late 20’s, still running wild, and still siring offspring. I was so happy when Patrick Brennan allowed me use of his photo of Picasso as reference for this painting, which is part of a series of Mustang paintings I have been creating. I plan to donate a percentage of the sale of this painting to the Sand Wash Basin Mustangs.

This original pastel painting is for sale. It measures 11″ x 14″ and is completely framed and behind glass. Priced at $425, plus $25 shipping. Please contact me at mebharris@mebsart.com for any additional information.

Picasso is also available in print, as well as a very unique MagnaChrome print on metal. Contact me for details.
