Headless Horseman

16 X 20 Framed Oil on Masonite $100 + shipping

When we have friends visit from out of town, they often want to ride a horse and get the "Texas Experience". I was blessed for 13 years with a horse that was perfect for "greenhorns". Her name was Miss Jack and she knew the difference between expert riders and beginners, and she behaved accordingly. The lady on this horse is a transplant from Maine and she absolutely LOVES Texas and takes every opportunity to absorb more of its riches - including riding Miss Jack. I painted her glowing face out of the picture so in essence she becomes "everywoman" experiencing Texas from the first time on a horse.
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
