Artist's Note:   
"I was here in Hawai'i
when 9/11 happened. Like
the rest of America I
watched with horror the
unfolding events of that
day and the days
following. I dealt with the
stress and grief of that
terrible strategy by
painting this horse scene.

The setting is Waimea on
the Big Island of Hawai'i
and it appears very
pastoral. But the theme
behind this painting is:
though we have many
freedoms here in America
and can basically do what
we want within the limits of
the law, our actions need
to be reigned in, fenced in,
when these actions cause
hurt, cause harm to other
people. Liberty without
personal restraint is
chaos."
