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.
