Helloooo out there!

I haven't posted anything on this blog for a shamefully long time! I have actually started another blog for my weekly paintings called Q-7painting. Check it out when you can! I am posting a new painting tonight!!
This is a work in progress of a wonderful rider and horsewoman, Theresa Brummit. I believe you can reach her site by going to Brummit Dressage. I promise to check on that!! Approximately 3 years ago she was a participant in a Baroque Horse Showcase held at a local farm. I was there to photograph the event and was able to take some very fun pictures of some gorgeous horses and exhibitions. I will post a link to the event soon. This is a large pastel painting on Wallis paper. 20 x 30". I still have a ways to go on it, but I am liking the direction in which it is heading.
Much has happened since my last posting, but for the sake of everyone I will let the past be the past! I will mention that I got my first puppy in July. I have had many rescue dogs They have all been adults so he is my very first Puppy! His name is Winstion and he is a 4 month old Golden Retriever. I hope this all finds you well, content and at peace.
Talk with you soon!

HITS Equine Art Gala 2010 v

It has been such a long time since I have posted on to my Blog! It feels like I am starting all over again. I wanted to share with you all my evening. I was invited to exhibit my equine artwork in the HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun) Equine Art Gala. This is the third time I have done this. It is a dressy event hosted at the very beautiful Golden Ocala Country Club. I usually dread things like this and would rather stay at home in jeans and a tee shirt but my dear friend Andi encouraged me in this adventure. Even made me go clothes shopping!!
I set up my artwork in a great spot near the bar, food and next to the piano, and the night began! My dear friend Andi Somers was there to help me every step of the way!! Big THANK YOU to her!! Some really terrific artists were there--Sharon Crute , Mary Verandeaux , Mindy Colton and Texas artist Joanna Zeller Quentin. The magnificent art of Polish born artist Andre Patre was there as well! What a treat!! Very nice to meet you Holly! Had the great pleasure to meet some very interesting and wonderful people too! I even sold a piece! Thank you so much Diana Venegas and Dr. David Singer! There was a silent auction to benefit the Humane Society of Marion County! Very nice to meet you Mary and Bruce!! All in all a great night!
