Still alive!

Just a little update for the three people still checking into my blog, yes I'm still alive. My horses are still alive too. I've even got a sort of plan for training and riding them this year. Part of my plan hinges on what kind of outdoor play equipment I can get to keep my son occupied for a half hour or so at a time...

Babies change everything.

In other stuff I've been doing, I've been focusing on art this year. I've always been a bit of a "closet" artist but this year I've decided to really go for it. Here's a piece that I finished last week that I'm thinking of entering into a local, juried, show.

What do you think?


  1. Babies do change everything! They're a lot of work but well worth it!

    When I first saw that picture I thought you pulled it off the internet. It's beautiful! You're a very talented artist. If I were you I would definitely enter it in an art would be a great way to showcase your art works and maybe get some commissions for more work. If you're interested at all in doing paintings for people that is.

  2. Like Grey Horse said, I thought you had posted something from the internet- wowzers girl you should be doing that full time! Lovely piece!
    Love your header photo too.

  3. That is GORGEOUS, absolutely love it. Definitely enter! You would blow them away. And I hear ya about the babies thing, horses/riding and young kids is TOUGH!!

  4. Thank you all! I'm going to enter it, I'll let you know if it gets accepted in May.

  5. Coming from three children under four here, I hear you! Babies turn your life absolutely upside down. Good luck with the art show, your piece is gorgeous. :)
