So, it's the summer holidays, and as it's hard to get much painting done, it is time instead for the annual tidy up of my studio! ( and I have family coming to visit next week, and at least one of them will have to sleep on the little cabin bed in there!). I have finally got around to making prints of all the transformations paintings. These are listed on Etsy here. I also have a very limited number of cards with these printed on. I have not listed them on Etsy, as it's not really economical to do so, but if there are any you particularly want, do please contact me, and I will see if I have them.( they are £1.50 each)
And, after much deliberation, I have decided to offer up the originals of all these shown here. I'm not very good at parting with originals, but my house is tiny, and I like to have most of my wallspace crammed with other people's artwork, so there really isn't much room for my own. These larger originals, are all listed on ebay here.
And that brings me to this little mare, purchased on a whim, because I liked her, although I have had to scrabble around and borrow from the housekeeping money to find enough to pay for her. (Another reason for deciding to part with original paintings) Thankfully, the family agreed they didn't mind me doing this! She is 2, possibly 3 ( a little bit of uncertainty there) approximately 13hh at the moment, and has a pair of piercing blue eyes. Her name is Mahogany Mist ( she is by the connemara stallion Timber in the Mist) but I promised the children they could choose an every day name for her. I had to rule out Misty from the start - we already have a pony called Foggy, and although we do live in the wettest place in the UK, I really don't need any more reminding of it. Instead they opted for a tree name, and chose Hazel, which I think suits her, so Hazel she will be. She is kind natured, and trusting, but very nervous and anxious about her new home at the moment. Marlene is grudgingly playing nursemaid to her, though she is starting to get annoyed by Hazel following her so closely that she bumps into her everytime she stops.
