Cooler Autumn weather has
arrived here in Warwick, and Ron and I have been extra busy preparing for our exhibition with John Bradley at the
We took a trip down with a
load of paintings a few weeks back, and Trevor introduced us to John and Maggie, and what a delightful and
interesting couple they are to be sure. We even took the caravan out to their place that afternoon, had dinner with
them and stayed overnight. Willy my beautiful Ragdoll cat soon made himself right at home and stared at their 2
dogs through the window - his presence had ousted them from their home! We had a delightful and relaxing trip there
and back, travelling about 200km's a day and free camping. Willy had a ball! Since we've come home he thinks he's
entitled to 2 walks a day instead of only one! Yes I take my cat for a walk on a very long lead- or more precisely,
he takes me for a walk!
Ron has had to get his
brushes busy, he is doing another painting for the exhibition after the sale of one of his paintings that was used
in the advertising. It probably won't be finished, so he'll have it on the easel in progress at the exhibition.
John will be painting something in oils and I will be working at the easel too... with pastels or pastel pencils I
think...not sure what yet.
DVD's "How to Draw Horses"
and "Painting Clydesdales In Pastel" with Jennifer Jowett ( yes that's me ....19 years ago and MUCH slimmer!) will
also be showing and for sale.
The Bar Runners, Stubby
Coolers, Coasters and Mouse Pads featuring Ron's "The Charge" will also be available and raising funds for the 11th
Light Horse Warwick Montrose Troop.

To live is to choose.
But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for,
where you want to go and why you want to get there.-
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.- Eleanor Roosevelt
