Dressage CDI by Dianne Russell
Riding faded for a long time after she moved to San Francisco, Calif., but she continued to study art in high school and college. In later life she drew at the Fort Mason and Pacific Grove arts centers (Calif.).
During her son’s childhood, the family became involved with horses, and her passion renewed. Now, at 18, her son is an ambitious rider, and horses are a significant part of Russell’s life. She’s happily come full circle and is back to drawing them in order to express her admiration of their beauty, athletic prowess and general contributions to the welfare of human beings.
This week’s cover, Dressage CDI, is an 18″ x 24″ colored pencil and ink drawing. Russell resides in Pacific Grove, Calif.
