I started this painting during the Open Studios event. But it is really hard to concentrate fully on my painting when people are coming in and out of the studio, asking me questions. So, I put it aside for a couple of days, then returned with fresh eyes. Now I love it. The texture and layers are just what I was trying to do. Definitely one of my favourites.

This is inspired by previous horse.
Every spring she would come into season and fancy the most inappropriate horse ( usually inappropriate due to them being at least 4hands higher and gelded!!). Ah, the joys if Spring! 

I love this moment when horses meet each other... just before the squealing starts!!

Open Studios!!





This weekend is the annual Open Studios Fife event.
There will be 86 artists opening their studios to the public. So if you fancy coming along and seeing where an artist creates, what inspires them and maybe even purchasing a memento or two you can find out all about the artists (including me) here:

During this event there is a small chance that some items that are no longer available will still show as if they are available online. This is because if I sell work from my studio it will take me a short while to update my website. if this happens I will refund your money straightaway. If you are considering a purchase you can always catch me on 07941 276796
