Okay, So the Holiday *Is* Over....

We made it back from Saratoga, safely and begrudgingly!  In the past few days the rain has been making up for lost time here in Southern Ontario, which has meant no riding for me because my footing turns to mud.  Between the horses, trying to finish and epic novel (reading a few pages before I pass out at the end of the day is usually the only time I get to read anymore) and working away at some paintings, I've managed to keep busy.  The latest piece to be finished is this 16 x 8" oil on Raymar cotton canvas panel.  It's this year's star model, Thoroughbred foal Hugo, and I'm calling it, "I'm Coming!"  or, "I Hear You Calling II."  Do you remember the original "I Hear You Calling?"  :-)

If you're interested in this painting let me know - it's currently available for $650.00 unframed (price will need to be adjusted once it's framed). A better photo is available on request.
