See How I've Missed You....

Relaxing in the afternoon.
Ah, Saratoga.  Usually a trip to the Spa is my only time away from the farm, the annual trek to visit with my equine artist friends and hang out in the cool town of Saratoga Springs.  Last year it wasn't meant to be, and I was fortunate enough to manage a visit to San Francisco (and down to LA for the Breeders' Cup), but it was great to be able to make it back to Saratoga this summer.  We drove through rain to get here Wednesday, but have been blessed with perfect weather since.  Often it's been very hot and humid, but this time around sunny and warm, but not uncomfortable.

So far the trip has included requisite trips to Mrs. London's, and the track.  We caught some races yesterday, and this morning we watched the horses train at the Oklahoma training track, and actually got to see Wise Dan work on the turf. Tomorrow will be a painting demo by Kim Santini, and a book signing for Juliet Harrison's Track Life book. 

I don't have any art showing anywhere this year, though I brought a few pieces that will travel on to the Equis Art Gallery in Red Hook, NY. Maybe one year we will have a show at the Spa again!
