Featured in this lot is this oil painting on canvas of two horses creek side from artist Margie Jackson born 1934 and died 2021. The artwork shows two horses creek side with a wooded scene in the background and under a clear sky with some clouds in the distance. Margie Jackson (1934-2021) was a painter for years before she became a sculptor. Her experience at casting her creations in bronze began around 1976. Jackson lived on a farm in Yelm, Washington, but grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. Because the range was open and cattle left on their own, they would be prey to packs of wolves and coyotes. Horses were still respected as a means of transportation and the area was plentiful with Native Americans still richly steeped in their own culture, lending to the inspiration of her work. Among her numerous awards are Best of Show-Sculpture at the Celebration of Western Art Show in Olympia, Washington and First and Second places at the 1986 and 1987 Arizona Annual Art Shows. She was commissioned to create bronze and limited-edition prints celebrating the Washington State Centennial; the city of Yelm purchased one of these pieces for installation in the City Hall. The condition of this framed oil on canvas painting is good with no obvious signs of damage and in good overall display condition. The measurements of this painting are 33 1/2" x 43 1/2" and the visible art measures 29 1/2" x 39 1/2".
