Windswept is one of Lynda Burton Sappington’s portrayals of Baroque horses.
Sappington, an award-winning artist, grew up riding hunters in Great Falls and Vienna, Va. Her husband’s job took them to Ohio in 1973, and they currently reside in West Alexandria.
Sappington said Windswept is one of her favorite pieces, and she hopes one day to produce a full body piece with this pose. This bronze sculpture is 10″ high, 103⁄4″ long and 61⁄2″ wide on a walnut base mounted on a turntable.
Sappington said, “Such a ‘windy’ piece should turn, and there’s really no front to the piece.”
