I had so much fun doing this drawing of my dog,
I am doing a similar one of my cat.
I know this drawing is a dog but I want to talk
about my horse that died two years ago. When
Hercules died I questioned if I should give up riding.
Starting over with a new horse seemed overwhelming,
but I felt very sad when I imagined my life without horses.
So I stared the process of looking for a new equestrian friend
and found Eli. He is the perfect horse for me in so many
ways and I am blessed to have him in my life.
I am happy I didn’t give up!
On to the reason I am telling this story…
there is a parallel in the direction of my art career. For the
past two years I have done many illustrations for what
would have been my second children’s book. Recently,
the book died for reasons I won’t get into.
This, like the loss of my horse, made me question my
direction. Will I ever do another children’t book, maybe
but not right now. However I am having a great time
creating art in my own style and in a playful way.
For now it feels right and easy and I can’t wait to see
where it goes. If it is anything like what happened with
Eli it will be wonderful.
