I am off on holiday for 3 weeks starting this weekend.  Mixed feelings though as the The Three Counties Show is on with some amazing Arabian horses showing, which I would loved to have seen. I am in the middle of a painting of a Crabbet Arabian performing a ballet across the sand. Really excited about this as it describes in an evocative way the character and beauty of these creatures.

I also pulled out another painting done some years back of the world of Eventing, featuring top riders at that time such as Zara Phillips, Mary King and William Fox Pitt. It is a monster piece with Badminton House at the centre background and Richard Meade in forground.  Must get it framed sometime.

Signing off for 3 weeks break.
