In this interesting, understated work, the artist depicts three horses on a Midwestern plain. This combination of simplicity and sophistication might remind the viewer of the simplicity and sophistication of the great state of North Dakota. The painting is missing paint in places, inviting the viewer to imagine what might be or what might have been.
