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!

I was told the piece went a proper show-off-round in his proud hands 🙂 L-R: Christian Bazire, Jean Michel Baudoin (Owner of Elvis Madrik) Joël Séché

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
