Ten Weeks: Bugged

Baby Girl was not very impressed with me when I took off her mask last week in order to get some photos. I think her look says it all - this is *not* acceptable for The Princess! This week's painting is 6 x 6 oil on canvas.

She's in for another rude awakening - today the *original* princess came back from the track for some R&R. That would be Gracie, of course! Gracie left a week after the new filly was born, and I do admit having the new foal to dote over helped me deal with my separation anxiety for Gracie. Miss Grace will get the rest of the year off to grow - she is such a big, tall filly, and still growing. It was good for her to get into Woodbine and see the sights, but physically she still needs some time. Of course it's anyone's guess whether she'll actually make it to the races. Such is the game! I'm happy to have her home.

I love this! You really can tell that she's thinking "Come on now, why would you let the bugs get in my face??". I'm really glad I stumbled on your blog, love your paintings and photos!
