March into Spring!

Well, I thought I ought to get a second post done! Its been a busy week, I have got one commission done and ready to send this week. Plus I present a prize of a painting at the Welsh Pony and Cob Society AGM every year. - This was presented on Saturday! - unfortunately I could not be there this year and sent the picture to the Society offices by post. Not amused to hear that it arrived with the glass smashed to smithereens As it was last minute the picture had to be presented without glass in it.. Arrgh..!
It has made me reconsider my packaging but I can't see a way of improving it and it was stuck all over with FRAGILE tape but this has not happened before and I must have sent dozens of pictures out in the past, so I guess I have to chalk it up as one of those things..

Onwards. I have lots to do, another commission of a lovely chestnut mare, and I am also doing new work for a solo exhibition in a local art gallery - Pendre Art - that views in April. More to follow here soon!

I will be working on my entries for the Society of Equestrian Artists Annual Exhibition in London too - I am an Associate Member - so I will also post those as they progress.

And also a mini exhibition down in the West of Cornwall at St Pirans Spanish Horse Stud. Who are hosting an open day this summer. I have special interest in the Spanish horses as I have just bought a superb foal from the stud this is him! With his mum Fraccion. He will be a year old in April and you will be hearing a lot more about him! His sire is the successful dressage stallion Enorme, from the Susaeta Stud near Madrid.

I had been looking for a Spanish horse for a long time and finally found him! Take a look at St Pirans website they are very special people and very special horses.
