Caution Born of Necessity - Howard Terpning

Plains Indian life was not the idyllic at-peace-with-the-world existence some
romanticists would like us to believe. The Indian lived with constant exposure
to the elements, to hunger and privation and the less-than-tender mercies
of enemy neighbors. Like the wild animals among whom he lived and from
whom he took careful lessons in survival, he developed a strong
sense of watchfulness, of caution.

As a storyteller, Terpning is able to use the simple task of getting water
as a vivid example of the tenuous nature of Plains Indian life. As an artist,
the water provides Terpning with the ability to create a great abstract form
that leaps out from this work, driven by the cool reflections of the river and
the man leaning hesitantly forward. His reflection in the water and that of
his horse, form a part of that dynamic shape. The slight touches of
light upon the horse make this vivid work complete.
