"Horseback Rider" Beadwork and Paint on Canvas; this piece is painted with acrylics and then beaded over the top of the horse, child, and a few blades of grass. A fun addition to this piece is, instead of beading the hat, it is composed of a tan cowhide and stitched in place. The beaded boot is also done with a couple layers of bead foundation to add the slightest elevation and create more depth. The sides of the canvas are also painted, making framing optional.


This one-of-a-kind piece was hand-sewn using size 11 seed beads over hundreds of hours in intricate detail. This statement piece would look great on a mantel, in a well-trafficked entryway or entertaining space.


Size: 20 in. x 24 in. x 1/2 in.
