“Three Passions: Horses, Flowers, Travel” features new works by Cheri Isgreen.
Horses highlights my deep connection with horses, especially my special relationship with Monarch, who I have raised and trained from green colt to seasoned show, clinic, trail, and special events horse.
“Ebony and Ivory” is my newest watercolor. It depicts a Lipizzan and a warmblood in joyful camaraderie. These horse create their own “liberty pas de deux.” Look closely at how suspension enhances the beauty of horses’ movement. Light on living forms creates a unending variety of interesting and harmonious shapes. The white horse is defined by shadows, in contrast to the highlights defining form in the black horse.
Flowers, like Horses focuses on my interest of how light defines living forms. Unlike Horses, (which I paint in a narrative style), Flowers are painted in a looser style that explores pure design and composition.
Travel samples a collection of entries from my travel sketch journals in a variety of media, including pencil, ink, watercolor, and collage. Works are presented as 5″ x 7″ framed prints from Colorado, Utah, Texas, and Mexico trips.
