Fresh off my Easel... Bay My Hero and William Fox Pitt

I was able to finish this painting before Rolex after all!  It is a 16 x 20 Oil on linen. It was inspired by seeing this winning team compete at Rolex in 2014. 

Carol Gee of Fernhill Sport Horses introduced me to Catherine Witt a few years ago after Parklane Hawke's win at Rolex. This was a painting that I wanted so much to complete as I'm a big fan of Catherine Witt's horses ( in this case Bay My Hero) and William Fox Pitt. I am hoping this painting acts as a big shout out for his continued success as he comes back into competition after his injury last year. 

Eventers are T O U G H and resilient athletes and an inspiration to us all for working through life's ups and downs. Best of luck and safe trips to all our competitors this year!
