“This North American artist boasts an exquisite pointillist style that allows for different levels of appreciation depending on the distance from which her works are viewed.”

The front riders would stop and let their horses nibble at the swaying grasses, waiting quietly for the last members of the group. If you look really closely, you can find the riders making their guest appearance.”"
