    The Rider (Ode to a BarnBurner Story)

    The rider had sat motionless on his horse for an hour or more. The stand of pines located to his right, and a third of the way down the hillside, had been his choice as the best place to stop.

    We may wonder whether he's either Sean or Dover, but You certainly interpreted pretty well BB's epopee!

    Fabulous illustration

    A beautiful painting. Really like the background effects as well as the rider. Good job and how nice of you to be so supportive!

    Very nice tribute...
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thanks for the wonderful responses! I have wanted to do this for some time. BB's stories conjure lots of images in my head, but since he does his own imagery, I didn't want him to think I was infringing.

    Perhaps it would be a fun "Challenge" for all to do one from a favorite passage...
