“I look forward to this annual exhibit of Western artwork,” says Judith Hale. “We have had a great response from our artists. I am overwhelmed by the rich colors and tones. And with the relationship of the cowboys and their horses.”
“She has captured the special moment when a cowboy stands alongside his horse”.
In Davidson’s latest painting Hale notes, “She has captured the special moment when a cowboy stands alongside his horse. You can almost sense the relationship that exists between them.” She added that “In a large format oil painting, Davidson has captured colors and tones of the materials and textures being worn.” Davidson is a noted artist from Santa Barbara, recognized for her large striking equine images. She participates nationally in many equine art events.
