Art Review - "Making Time" by John Moyers

Last week's #MuseumTourTuesday, featured a painting by John Moyers, and this week I'd like to share a drawing by the same artist. This piece is also featured in the "Sons of Charlie Russell: Cowboy Artists of America" exhibit currently on view at the Briscoe Western Art Museum.

I love how the horse and rider come together as one figure, but what I admire most about the drawing is the use of quick fluid strokes. This suggests the frenetic movement of the subject. The barely rendered back leg of the horse enhances this action, while also adding depth and atmosphere.
