Riderless Horse in Mountain Scene
This inlaid picture of a riderless horse in a mountain scene was the second most difficult picture to get a decent shot of. I'm sure more expert people know how to get a true square in a light box with a large picture, but I haven't figured that one out yet. The picture measures 18 1/2 by 26 1/2 inches and was completed in October 1990. Dad gave me this picture for some reason that escapes me now but which I wish I had noted on the back of the picture. Again, study the wood grains and veneer patterns to appreciate what a tremendous accomplishment the making of a picture and work of art like this is.
