In discussing this painting the artist wrote, “The idea for this painting was to illustrate the noise and force of a bunch of horses at full gallop among the plains. While visiting my father-in-law in Oklahoma a few years ago, I was struck by the immensity of those plains. I caught myself imagining how it would have been for a group of outlaws, to run wild and free there, in a time when there were no fences and barbed wire. The roar of the horses contrasting with the silence of the vast landscape, a few minutes before the bunch showed up. In addition to the group of riders, I wanted to show a massive threatening cloud, to reinforce the idea of rush, of tension. We don’t know what those riders are after. We don’t know if they just left a scene or if they’re going somewhere special … all we know is that they just cross our vision for a few seconds.”
