"Normality" is within reach

The end of a hectic three weeks is near; within touching distance.
A wee lean foward and I'll be able to feel smooth reassuring vibes...

Two week-ends of shows/exhibition and a mile stone "Back to School" have been at the forefront of my life.
Unforgiving Generals in command of all my moves, thoughts and decisions...  I'll say no more.

Drawings hanging in the club house under the watchful eye of wee "Taxi".

Last week-end, my pencil drawings made their annual appearance in the  Ostenfelde club-house for the annual Ostenfelde Kutschfahrturnier show. 
They were hung alongside the brilliant work of fellow artist Dirk Gross for three days of showing.
Dirk's work is exceptional.
Poles apart from my black and white realism.  His paintings ooze energy, reel the viewer into an novel abstract world. Into a world brimming with new life, normality having crumbled at the way side in the wake of soul searching colours and gravity defying movements.
For a realist like myself one heck of a fascinating and awe inspiring world to have been introduced to.

Torrential heat discouraged many visitors to "just pop round" for a refreshing drink. The show, as it does, went on and the driving was as thrilling and amazing as ever.

Business for the studio was good.
New drawings will be shared in the near future but until then I'd love to share a few of the images I took of a glorious sunny week-end.

Symphony of Stallions/Symphonie der Hengste

The symbioses between graceful movement and heavenly sounds is mesmerising add to that the magical elegance and presence of equines and well quite frankly I'm in heaven!

This last week-end was all about being in heaven, sitting under the stars and revelling in something quite unique.  Open air orchestra and beautiful charismatic stallions.

Here are a few "behind the scenes" shots of the beautiful arched stables transformed for the "ball".
Real stunning pictures of the event can be viewed here. (My wee iphone never saw the light of day night ... )

 On the left, just in front of Son of Cologne's stable my three drawings on display.

Quite a few ps under this bonnet. Dream cars, dream horses, dream setting....

Stunning back drop. Orchestra under a starlight sky.

 The whole V.I.P area was lighted-up beautifully.

and so was the court yard.

Next post, I'll let you all in on the real reason why I was there....
