Painting of the Day, December 19, 2011

By Donna Poulton

Jason Rich, C.A., Back to Pasture, c. 2011, oil, 36 x 48 in. Credit:

Having grown up on a horse farm in southern Idaho, Jason Rich understands the temperament and movement of working horses. His paintings are characterized by rich impasto and he is not afraid to use luminous color and contrasts to capture the mood of the land. His loose-edged, painterly technique allows him to depict motion and action among the animals and men that often dominate his compositions. Rich has won numerous awards and is recognized as a major emerging western artist.
