This week’s cover, Wellington, is a watercolor depicting the Winter Equestrian Festival show grounds in Florida.

The award-winning artist specializes in brilliant watercolors, and his sporting art has appeared on the covers of the Chronicle and The New York Times Magazine as well as many other publications. As a member of the National Watercolor Society and the American Academy of Equine Art, Tang has exhibited widely, and many of his works are in numerous private and permanent collections nationwide.

Most recently Tang has focused on large, lush, photo-realist watercolors of the Los Angeles landscape, where he resides.
