Sneaky peek...

Today I couldn't resist sharing a sneak peek of one of the soon-to-be-lotteried Jitterbugs! Yes, it seems an overwhelming 64% of you prefer lotteries as a mode of sale, so here we go! My goal right now- provided all goes well, of course- is to lottery off two Jitterbugs at the end of this month. I may only get one finished, but I am aiming for two. And for all those interested, I'm pricing them at $525 each, ppd/insured through UPS. I will be making an announcement on my Yahoo Group about the lottery when it goes into effect. If you are not a member of my Yahoo Group, I've placed a convenient link on the right hand side of my blog for your Yahoo Group joining pleasure.

Back at the Track!

Finally made it back to Santa Anita today! I'd been hoping to go more often to sketch, but a 3-week stint house-sitting in another city got in the way a bit (but I got to take care of an adorable dog, so that made up for it!). Anywho, as I was leaving Clocker's Corner, I spotted an artist working on a big, beautiful painting of horses breaking from the starting gate. Her name is Kathy Pate, and she was wonderfully nice, and was happy to hear that I sculpted horses. She really made my morning- it is always nice to run into other artists who take an interest. I'd been brushed off by a few in the past, and it is heartwarming to know not everybody in the larger equine art world is like that!
