I don't make it general practice to allow artists to paint from my photographs, but when one of my favorite artists Kimry Jelen asked, I couldn't say no. She did a great job, don't you think? Congratulations to Sheryl Rudolph, CEO and founder of FITS on this addition to your home.
I'm happy to have been part of the inspiration for this lovely work capturing Sheryl's equine partner Monty. The original image that inspired Kimry was photographed during a dressage test at Devonwood in the indoor arena. The photograph had captivated Sheryl so it was no surprise that she is thrilled with having an inspired larger than life version of Monty in the form of a beautiful painting.
