Landscapes featured at “Legacy” part 1

“Legacy” is a retrospective exhibition, showing the artistic range of artists Cheri Isgreen and Sabrena Soong.  

Before I began painting horses, I enjoyed going into nature to paint the landscape “en pleine aire.”  These experiences taught me much about painting.  For this show I included both watercolor and pastel landscapes.  These are studio pieces; most are recent paintings, completed within the past year.  I included two watercolor pieces, “Aurora Butte,” a semi-abstract composition using the poured technique and “Summer Storm, Mt. Sopris,” the landscape study I completed for the commission, “Leader of the Pack.”

Of the pastel landscapes, three are a suite of Dallas Divide in the fall after an early snow.  The three pieces include a wide perspective, a close up of an aspen grove, and a vertical featuring the western sky.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)
