"Horses have of course been Mr. Coburn's first and greatest love. But next to these are skies – skies clear and cold [or] filled with threatening storm masses through which a hidden sun illumines a distant line of hills; or [...] a warmer late-winter sky dominated by softly floating cumulus [...] Many of the outstanding Canadian artists have painted horses well, but few if any have mastered the technique of painting a sky of comparable truth and artistry."
