Painting Slump


Hello Friends, Collectors and Family,
I'm in a slump again. I can't paint my way out of a paper bag anymore. Maybe because I had beef for lunch. I had a french dip sandwich over at Harrah's casino with a couple of girlfriends. I painted two disasters and one that I may be able to keep working on and get something. Two are scraped off and drying to make an interesting background for more paintings and one I'm going to work on more later. Do I dare post that? No because I want to get into the Daily Painters Gallery at Dailypainters.com - They said they're going to jury me in February. What if they see bad paintings and they don't let me in? Here is a photo of my paint colt last Saturday getting his feet trimmed. I may make a painting - Farrier - soon. Vinny - the colt - is 16.1 hands and 4 years old. I raised him from a 3 month old baby and may be selling him in the Spring when he sheds his winter coat and is a little more finished under saddle. He turns 5 in May. I broke him myself and have been riding him dressage for a about a year now. You can see a video of me riding him last September at http://gallery.mac.com/debimcswain#gallery I'm sure we have improved since the video was taken. My neighbor is going to video me on the colts again as soon as the rain lets up. Thanks for hanging in there with me and reading my blog. Debi

I doubt it was the beef; I'd blame the bread. But that's me. :-)
