It's Good to be Back!

So good to be back at Oklahoma!

I'm doing my best to get over there in the mornings. Kentucky trip, commissions, getting ready for a show next weekend on Beekman Street, yada, yada, yada. No excuse is good enough. The numbers of horses aren't what I thought should be there but who's counting?

The pre-race meet mood is relaxed. Lots of amiable conversation overheard in the fresh northern air as the ghosts of history welcome back the horses and their people. I've lived a former life here and feel as if I've come home. That's more than I can say about any place else...and this gypsy has traveled all over our beautiful country.

I did a quick plein air sketch, searched out a place where I can set up for multiple days without bothering anyone and, of course, took lots of photos. Please enjoy a few...

Some horses prefer to train themselves,

I see a couple of great paintings in these photos, Sharon. Thanks for sharing them for us to see what you see on a daily basis now.

My pleasure Karen. These are not even the best as I have a couple of artist stalkers who steal my ideas and everything I do. I have to be so careful what I post and what I say. This sounds harsh but I believe some "artists" don't have an original thought in their heads. Oh well, I can still willingly share with friends!
