Long overdue update!

Commissions and babies and life in general have kept me from my original work these last few months so I am now mid last minute rush to get paintings completed in time for exhibition deadlines!

I managed to finish my latest piece 'Rocket Science' this week. The subject is a striking eventer photographed by Helen Heffron whilst competing in the dressage phase of an event last year. I am very grateful to Helen for allowing me to work from her beautiful photos of him.

I have just started a further two paintings, both based on some of the many many photographs I took last weekend at Badminton Horse Trials. Fellow equestrian artist Sally Lancaster and I had a wonderful day watching the cross country and working hard to shoot as many potential decent reference photos as possible!!!
