Light Horse Art Ron & Jennifer Marshall Marshall Fine Art Editions


Night Watch 


Copyright © 2007 Ron Marshall

The night is silent and overcast, until the clouds have parted and the light of a bright moon has illuminated the scene. A lone Light Horseman with his horse is doing his turn on night watch. He has been peering into the darkness while his horse has taken the opportunity to graze on the scant vegetation along the wadi shelf. (a wadi is a gully or valley- usually dry)


His companions and their saddled horses sleep out of the picture in the shelter of a wadi bank. They are out on a few days patrol in the desert and all through the night one of his section will remain awake  with his horse, ready- just in case the Turkish enemy approaches, or even wandering Bedouins, who technically were on the British side, but in reality were on no side other than their own and could not be trusted.

I picked up the print today from our nosy small town postal worker. "What did you get from Australia?" she asked. When I remarked that it was a print of the Australian Light Horse in WWI all that generated was a very puzzled look.
In any event the print is absolutely gorgeous . . . better "in person" than on the website! Thanks so much for sending it out so fast. Now I've got to make some wall space available . . .

Dear Mr. Marshall,

Your print on canvas "The Charge" was given to me at my retirement dinner by my officers of the Special Operations Component, Coral Springs Police Department in Coral Springs, Florida. Trully stunning rendition which captures the excitement of the moment while conveying a warmth of comeradeship to the end. It will hang in my study above my collection of King and Country Lighthorsemen collectibles.

I served 35 years with Coral Springs Police Department with the last four years as Captain of the S.O.C. which is 26 officers strong with various units (Tactical & Gang, K-9, Bikes and Substations).

Your painting made my day, thank you, F McK.
