The Queen's Plate is approaching, and for the second year, Woodbine is holding a contest for the "Official Queen's Plate Artist." Seeing as one of my "real" jobs is painting horses, with a preference for racehorses...entering the contest was a natural thing. I made it to the top five, and now it's up to a popular vote to determine the winner of the contest. I've written about my painting, and the great story behind the filly in it, on my art blog. Take a peek! Cinderella, Cinderella... the story behind the painting.
I consider myself a closet novelist - and this is what I've been hiding in the closet. This blog contains excerpts from the story, musings on Thoroughbred horse racing, and some of my thoughts as I contemplate trying to get published.
