Evening Ride, 50″x32″, Oil on Canvas
I was honoured to be commissioned by the Rocky View Foundation, to create this painting for their Crossfield Seniors’ Lodge. I felt it would be fitting to create a piece that reflected some of the resident’s western heritage. I photographed the reference for ‘Evening Ride’ while driving along Highway 22X near Priddis. As soon as I saw the horses and riders, I hit the brakes, looking for somewhere to pull over and capture the scene. As an artist, I am accustomed to every ride in the country taking twice as long as normal. There are too many perfect moments to miss.
