The Riding Hat
I must have looked on at this view for a good portion of my girl's childhood. There were many horse riding lessons, many riding boots, crops, clothing and most of all riding hats. They were usually black velvet with a lovely black satin bow. Sarah and Ashley's pony tails draping from the back of the helmet always seemed to go so nicely with the shape of the horses tail. I was never very good at drawing horses, perhaps it was because I was too busy embracing the images of my lovely girls riding.

- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
