Regina Neri

The theme of my horse came from the town of Williamson. It has to do with Sodus Bay and Lake Ontario vistas, as well as the many apple trees around the area. On the left side of the horse I painted the Lake Ontario shoreline including sailboats and a lighthouse and on the right side tree designs with branches protruding from the legs of the horse, I then attached tissue paper to give texture to the leaves of the trees. Together with a bright blue sky background it perfectely resembles the apple orchards of Williamson. To tie in both themes I drew the fringe of a horse blanket around the front, including a button, and also on the tail area. The name Saggio means "Wise" in the Italian language. The horse is also a tribute to our Doberman Pincher who passed away several years ago. His name was "Saggio".
