Featured Painting for October 2010

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

The featured painting for October 2010 is entitled Horse Rearing, Boy Running.  This is a painting that Ian worked on for many years and did many preparatory drawings of the subject matter plus another rendition of it in 1988 in large format with a different colour scheme.  He was particularly pleased with this painting and unfortunately this is a painting that can only be fully appreciated to its beauty by seeing the actual painting which currently resides in New York City.  In 1997, a postcard was produced of this painting.
