Things Are Getting Very Exciting!!

I honestly believe that you get out what you put in, and just now I am working like crazy on my art and so much is happening...

Firstly, I will be appearing at The Fife Show this year on Saturday the 22nd of May.
I will have my stall-cum-gallery in the Equestrian section.
I am really looking forward to this but there is so much to do before the day. I must order prints of some of my most popular paintings, make mounts for the drawings and paintings that I have completed recently, try to sort out a deal with a local framer to make it easier for customers to have the paintings they purchase framed professionally....

I am also working on three completely different commissions:

In no particular order....
Firstly a graphite study of a very handsome chestnut called Basil - this is very exciting as it's quite an adventurous piece of work - I hope the client loves it as much as I do!!

Next, I am working on a charcoal drawing of a beautiful horse and gorgeous dog in the same image. They are both so picturesque so it's great fun. Even down to posing for the photos!!

And thirdly, a very detailed Graphite portrait of a much loved and sadly missed Kitty called Shelly. In the preferred photo she has her tongue sticking out - very cute!

These will all be completed by next weekend, if not before. It is really useful to work on more than one commission at once as it keeps each drawing/painting fresh and lively.

The online exhibition is going really well and I so appreciate all the support from everyone.
