Artist Lisa Curry Mair, of Canvasworks Designs, paints amazing floorcloths and murals. But she also paints saddles. She recently painted one of Beezie Madden’s saddles for an auction to benefit the Glenayre Equestrian Program.
She was kind enough to post instructions on how to paint a saddle, but unfortunately, while I have an old saddle kicking around, I don’t have the talent to paint it.
I am painting a saddle. It will be auctioned as a fundraiser for the Glenayre Equestrian Program on February 1. The saddle is one of Beezie Madden’s (Olympic Gold medalist and USEF 2019 International Equestrian of the Year). I am painting it with a Greek theme to represent the 2004 Olympics in Athens, where Beezie brought home the gold.
