It’s been a long time since I posted any news here. my apologies to followers, just busy!
First of all there is still no spring in Ireland .. same cold as in December and loads of shows are being cancelled due to bad ground and weather conditions.
At least local P2P wasn’t cancelled and I was lucky enough about weather and some good shots.
Antler challenge I always wanted to attend was postponed first and then cancelled at all, then some Hunter trials are cancelled too. I really hope this year some big shows will not be cancelled as I have planned to attend good few.
I am just back from sunny Spain where I had lovely road trip, and met my friends PRE horse breeders. My plan was to visit some more stables, but weather wasn’t good and also I didn’t realize that Spain is bigger than I thought next time I will plan better, also 6 days is not enough at all! I still visited three farms, and once again I say I love Spanish horses and one day I will own one!
Also there I had meet up with my good friends at Sunshine Tour. It supposed to be 5 weeks of sun, but it was 5 weeks of rain for them and many shows there have been cancelled too, and the one I had to take photos at of course was cancelled too because of heavy rain and thunders.
I was glad to stay at my friend’s in absolutely stunning place, I met her beautiful warmblood horses in front of my camera. It was good fun! I also ate loads of oranges from trees in their yard yumm!
I hope to visit Spain again this year, will see how my calendar will appear with bookings etc etc.
One week before trip I took part in photographic exhibition at Dublin Pearse Street library, where I had on display hunting and other random equine stuff. I can really see how much my photos improved since last show and I am almost proud of myself
Also did appearance at Sport Horse Ireland stallion inspections in Cavan, which about I’m thankful to Siobhan English for the opportunity, I hope we have more shows and events to work at together! Last time I saw so many beautiful boys five-six years ago where I worked at Baltic stallion inspections in Audruvis. I love stallions a lot! they are special!
Bad thing is that I don’t understand where my time is running and who is stealing it? I wake up every morning with a list of To Do , but then it’s already evening and seems like nothing is done.. well I try to manage all on my own which is not very helpful to my arts, as paperwork and networking is taking too much time, so this has really affected my personal challenge.. my great plan of finishing by Xmas has failed, next was to finish in April and again…. I am still less than in the middle! bad! I tell you I am not lazy!! I am proper workaholic and my family is not happy about it either.
now I am working on one commission of great show-jumper, I have few gigabytes of photos to work on, some shows coming up, of course challenge paintings to do and much more on my list I don’t complain about being busy I love what I do!
I can do it!
