About adrianruyle

Like my father and mother, all brothers and sisters, and even a nephew, i went to college at Berkeley. I made a living for years in mathematics, most notably as research mathematician at Harvard. Now working in art, I sometimes consider myself, though without title, as a research artist.

GODIVA VARIATION 4

The naked ride of Lady Godiva has ensnared imaginations for generations, my imagination included. I am offering on Etsy a series of prints of Lady Godiva’s provocative equitation, as seen from various viewpoints.

GODIVA VARIATION 2

The naked ride of Lady Godiva has ensnared imaginations for generations. My imagination included. I am offering on Etsy a series of prints of Lady Godiva’s provocative equitation, as seen from various viewpoints.

Variation 2 shows her eagerness to set off on her morning ride —an eagerness more than matched by the eagerness of her horse!

I originally painted this Horse, ridden by a hunter wearing riding pinks, on a 3’ x 5’ canvas. I had to redo the image digitally for printing, and other features.
