Recognition and Rewards

"Sheer Determination"
40" x 50"

This painting won BEST IN SHOW for Women in the Visual Arts' Northwood University Show, October 2004 and a Special Achievement Award from the Wellington Art Society in 2003. It was also chosen as the cover for Palms West Almanac 2004 Magazine.  The giclee of the painting was on display for six months in the City of Wellington as part of the Art in Public Places Program beginning in May 2005.

Kelsey Brophy is the young rider that inspired this painting. She must have been between 4 and 6 when it was painted.  I was taken by her strong will and determination that motivated her to care for her horse and ride him with such confidence. Kelsy has since become quite an accomplished rider with many awards to her credit.
