Cantering into the Weekend
When I sit down to paint one of these little (3″x3″) paintings, I ponder for a bit about what I’d like to capture today. This weekend I’ll be taking Kate to a 2-day dressage clinic with Lauren Sprieser, from Virginia. This is a clinic being hosted by the Central Vermont Dressage Association, of which I’m a board member. There will be ten of us riding with Lauren; all eager to learn the ropes and climb the levels. Lauren has a wealth of experience and is a wonderful trainer with a great sense of humor. Lots of fun! So that is what was on my mind. And then I got thinking about how everyone is looking forward to a nice late spring weekend and I decided I needed this dressage horse to be going somewhere. I also like to challenge myself with different perspectives of the horse’s figure. So there he goes cantering off into the weekend. I hope you have a good one too!
If you're interested in seeing what dressage is all about, stop by Kaleidoscope Farm at 593 Parker Hill Rd., Springfield, VT on Saturday or Sunday (the 2nd and 3rd). There is a $20 non-CVDA member auditing fee. Bring a folding chair too.
