“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.
The final landscape features a view of Monterey Pines in Golden Gate park.
