Tommy Thompson painted this oil landscape for submission to a major national exhibition, thus the painting is not for sale at this time. The traditional oil painter found these beautiful horses on a farm near Columbia, TN, while they were enjoying grazing in the sun.

Thompson has always been the kind who wanted to see what was around the next bend and over the next hill. Now he captures on canvas what he finds on his journeys . Today he feels driven to paint with passion depicting one of God's most beautiful creatures--the horse. He rides the roads less traveled looking for the play of light and shadows on quaint old barns and beautiful horses. He hopes that his paintings of these "creatures great and small" and his tranquil pastoral scenes add serenity to the lives of the viewers of his art.
