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!
