Photopainting: Candice King
Candice King is a lifelong equestrian. King has ridden on the grand prix circuit for two decades and has earned numerous titles in the United States and Europe. As a junior, she qualified for all the major indoor shows in the equitation divisions. Throughout her career, King has ridden on numerous Nation Cups and Samsung Super League teams, and was named Leading Lady rider at both Rome and Cannes. In 2006, she earned a spot on the short list for the FEI World Equestrian Games. Her family gave me a picture from which to create a large-scale photopainting. The image itself wasn’t technically great (shot at night, underexposed, noise) but the moment was terrific. According to Candice the finished photopainting is breathtaking, deeply cherished and proudly displayed. We wish her a speedy recovery from her recent tumble!
