Trooper 1880(Pushing On)
A cavalry soldier riding point pulls up his Bay mount to look
back on his platoon riding up from a majestic valley below.
The scene is framed on a grass covered ridge with a prominent
rock formation on the left. The soldier is a corporal from the
1880s era cavalry. Distant mountains in the background and a
dark clouded purple-blue sky complete the composition. Olaf
painted many Calvary painting, this is a favorite of mine.
From a 1979 painting titled: " "Cavalry Trooper 1880"
