    This pastel and charcoal painting is 22 x 30 inches on Stonehenge 90 lb. acid-free paper. It is based on an English saddle.

    The pommel (front of saddle) is at the top. The seat is in three sections in the top right of the painting. The skirt is in blue in several sections close to the middle of the painting.The knee roll is on the left and the stirrup hangs in several places in the middle and bottom.

    It was especially pleasing to work on this painting, breaking down the saddle parts to their basic shapes. The color scheme is predominantly complimentary with blues and oranges to help communicate my love for horses and riding.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
