New Beginnings..?

Oh my goodness, this really will not do... must try harder... much, much harder... life seems to continue apace and my contributions to my blog look to be at a polar opposite.

I have a busy year lined up as I intend going back "on the road" and exhibiting at various outdoor events such as agricultural and horse shows which is something I have not done since I got pregnant woith Alex about umm,... twelve years ago now! I just put it to one side, and never really got back on the horse so to speak. I definitely feel I lost the confidence to interact with people on a one to one basis about my work at this type of event and I have probably missed out on a lot of opportunities, but that is all in the past and I cannot recapture that lost time.

Don't get me wrong, I have continued to produce my art and I have learned a lot and done a lot, but I think I could have done so much more. I don't want to look back in five years time and be saying the same things over, so I had better get out there and do it! The photo below is of our mountain pony filly Faye, a real cutie and so full of naughtiness! I have already painted two little paintings of her. I am looking forward to watching her grow and develop and hopefully share a little chronicle of her life in paintings on the blog.
