Hard Trails Wore Out More Than Ponies
by Howard Terpning®
Few works garner more attention at the major shows than a Howard
Terpning painting. Devotion to the subject, extraordinary brushwork
and a sensitive palette drive the thunderous acclaim. Hard
Trails Wore Out More than Ponies brings together all these
elements in a classic Terpning work of art. The original painting
won the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Painting at the Autry National
Centers 2008 Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition
and Sale and sold for over $1.25 million.
Moccasins and all manner of equipment wore out constantly
when the Plains Indians were traveling,
says Howard Terpning. The long days were hard on their ponies
and their gear. On lengthy journeys,
they always carried awls and extra buckskin to make repairs on their
moccasins. These three Blackfoot
men have stopped to rest their horses and themselves so that they
may continue on their hard trail.
This spectacular Masterwork Fine Art Limited Edition captures
both the scale and the sensitivity of
the award-winning original and is your chance to bring home the
masterful craft of Howard Terpning.
