another amazing week spent in Paris!
I t’s been a privilege to be invited by @LeTrot to paint winner of the GNT Paris Turf series winner. Given just two hours to complete the painting for presentation to the winning owner was a little bit stressful at the start, but I must admit I’m delighted with the result.
🐎 Elvis Madrik – winner of the #GNT series modelled for me today during live session in Club Uranie of Vincennes.
I was accompanied by many admirers and one of the kids gave wise advice to add a whip in left hand of the driver 😂 I did!
Many thanks to my friend Anne Beatrice for her assistance and entertainment of my visitors, giving me opportunity to totally focus on work.. I did it!

Owner of Elvis Madrik, Jean Michel Baudoin, seems to be very happy with freshly created painting of his champion. I was told the piece went a proper show-off-round in his proud hands 🙂

dreams come true…
Not every day you are getting invited to the most amazing trotting event at world’s most amazing trotting track..
Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that my paintings will be displayed at Hippodrome de Vincennes never mind Prix d’Amérique Opodo weekend.. I still have goosebumps and I still can’t believe this all is real..
I would like to thank everyone who helped me in preparation of this exhibition, you know yourselves, you are amazing friends and your support means a lot to me! But most of all I would like to thank Le Trot for this opportunity of a lifetime and especially Emmanuelle Morvillers for kicking me into this dream coming true 🙂 and of course main person who invited me here Mme Marie-France Wissocq ❤
see you all in Paris 🙂 <3
Back to reality after my annual work trip to Spain, pity I forgot to pack some heat with me because Irish summer is when you need to grab rain jacket before you go out in the sun lol freezing!
I would like to thank every single person who made my trip so wonderful! I simply couldn’t wish for more! <3
In few days I drove over 700km to different locations covering beautiful lands of Andalucia, many times I had to stop and just adore the views..
Thanks to those taking care of my painful self, I’m finally on antibiotics and hopefully feeling better soon (aircons are evil!!)
I have now massive amount of work in the office to do..thousands of photos to sort .. and of course ekhm I am supposed to be painting too 🙂
I am now resuming normal work here in Ireland, so please don’t’ be shy and book your sessions and paintings on time!
love you all! Besos xxx
