Once again I had the honour of being invited to exhibit my work at Ostenfelde's Fahrsportfreunde annual driving competition. Hundreds of beautiful horses all strutting their stuff and pulling their weight were in action over an action packed three days.The week-end was a great success both for the club as well as for pencil art. The club had more than 850 entries. New commissions were taken and more people have discovered the beauty and power of graphite. A beautifully framed reproduction of my works Hurricane and Furst Piccolo was won by the winner of the four-horse team dressage class. I'm still in awe at how anyone can drive four big powerful equines so precisely with the only rhythm being that of harmony.
Great big thank you to all at the Fahrsportfreunde Verein for putting on an amazing show and making me feel so very welcome.

Beach splashes are over...

Wiping off the last of the sand before school starts next week.Boy it's tough getting back down to business after having been in the groove over in Scotland for more than 2 weeks. Mind you beach parties have a different meaning over there...the weather totally forbids normal souls from wearing any kind of beach attire!
Great to be back though... missed my little graphite friends! A few of you are waiting for a email response from me: will be on top of things by the end of tomorrow.
