| "This picture was commissioned
by the 'Sporting Life' and was reproduced as a limited edition print (one
of the very first of 'Desert Orchid' to appear!). His jumping was often
spectacular especially at Sandown where he is depicted here. I particularly
wanted to capture his zest and enthusiasm for jumping and the way he invariably
took off well away from the fence so I chose quite an unusual angle to
paint him i.e. as if from the fence itself.
The limited edition print was highly successful and was sold out. The original painting now belongs to Desert Orchid's owner Mr Richard Burridge. "
