Hello Friends and Horse Lovers,
It's been a while since I wrote anything on my blog. I've had a wonderful summer, in the garden, fixing up things around the house, seeing friends, and helping to plan the first ever Rockwood Mushroom Fest. More about that next time!
But first, I have to tell you that I seem to be returning to a love of my life - painting horses. This huge stallion was painted from a photograph I took quite a while ago, while they still had the Walking Ring at the Royal Winter Fair. There was just something about how this quiet and yet powerful horse strutted his stuff, with his big feathers waving at each stride, knowing he was the most beautiful horse in the world at that particular moment, with all eyes on him!
Anyway, when I heard about the Year of the Horse Show, I felt I had to be part of it. It has been organized by Vickie Lawrence, a very well known equine artist I first heard about many years ago. I entered this piece, another one about the Horse Pull at the Erin Fall Fair, and the Mare and Foal painted quilt I showed you last May, and was thrilled when they all got in.
I hope you can make it to the show - it runs from tomorrow until September 26th, and the Gallery is open every day from 10 to 5.
See you there!
