“I first started seriously painting horses when my daughter Angelique started taking horse riding lessons when she was in grade school.  I spent a lot of time at the stables with her, but especially at the ring where I would watch the horses go through their passes at the walk, trot and canter.  I often would do paintings in the studio from the sketches I would do there but sometimes, I just would load up the paints in the car and work directly on site out of the trunk of the car.  I just love trying to capture the spirit and flow of the horse’s movement.”
