Something new at long last!

It's been a while since I've had any new work to show but I hope the wait will prove to be worth it ;-)
I have been busy with home responsibilities (poorly relative) and not had much time to paint however I had an opportunity to photograph a beautiful foal for a commissioned portrait, this is "Gloria" painted in pastel on pastelmat approx A3

My extra photographs inspired me to paint a personal piece called "Security" which I have since submitted to the Society of Equestrian Artists open exhibition, this is a first for me and the start of a more pro active attempt to get my work "out there" and seen, so I need a good dollop of luck to get through the selection process!

Well its been a while since I had anything "arty" to post here but I haven't been idle :-), still not finished "Gertrude" but have been busy painting and getting work ready for the summer rush of local exhibitions.
For the first time ever I have actually submitted a work for consideration to The society of Equestrian Artists annual exhibition in London and am keeping everything crossed for an acceptance, although I am not very confident as the standard is always so high!
Main thing is I have crossed the first hurdle by actually acting instead of the usual good intentions................wish me luck!
