Just sent my application in today to Horse-A-Rama which will take place in early April. That makes two indoor shows on my schedule so far this year. I decided that I needed some quick, inexpensive updates to my exhibit booth if I was going to look decent indoors, so I got some clip-on lights for the display racks, and am working on a black fabric cover also for the racks. I really like the way paintings pop out from a black background, and although I have very nice racks, they are see-through wire construction which doesn’t provide any backdrop for the art. No photos yet, since we’re still “under construction”!
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.

For not the first time, but maybe the last time, I have started a "home business". The difference with this one is that it is one I really enjoy. I've drawn and painted horses since I was (at least) five years old--that's the earliest one that my mother saved.
By the time I entered my teens, Mother had grown a bit tired of the subject and urged me to do something else with my artwork besides horses. I followed her advice and never looked back until ten years ago when it occurred to me that people might actually pay for horse portraits. I have had many exhibits of my landscapes, and sold a good number of them--but not enough to provide any kind of steady income.
I'm hoping that if I work hard and market this business well I will be able to delight my customers, make some money, and have a lot of fun doing it.
