The New & Improved Willette Fine Art Site!

I’m excited that I’ve nearly completed building my new site for Willette Fine Art.  I used WordPress, Elegant Themes and a bit of specialized help from Velvet Blues design in Chicago.

So what to write about for my first blog post? How about the most recently completed War Pony. A Medicine Hat horse painted and photographed on the Blackfeet Reservation in Browning, Montana. I think that word – Montana – is about the best looking word there is in print. Fantastic state too. On my way to the shoot I stopped in Medora, ND at  Teddy Roosevelt National Park, home to a herd of wild horses. I had been there in the Spring, loved it and wanted to get back for a shoot when the grasses were mature and the babies had grown some. The opportunity to see horses that live independently of human involvement in the wild is a wonderful experience and made even better by the topography of the park. To me it’s a cross between the Badlands and the Black Hills – beautiful and complete with Bison and Prairie Dogs too!

Here’s the first photo of the trip shot in the park of this beautiful, powerful stallion shortly after sunrise.
