This time of year always sees me travel to the High Country for the weekend of the Man from Snowy River Festival. It is a great few days where the town of Corryong embraces the wonderful poem written by Banjo Patterson with many events and attractions. I enter the art show and demonstrate for a couple of days, enjoying the interaction with the public which makes a nice change from working in solitude in the studio. As a horse painter, it is an ideal show to display my work and to see many other equine paintings grace the hall. I receive many lovely comments about my work and I sincerely thank all the people who take the time to stop by and have a chat, I really appreciate the feedback. I was honoured again to receive a second prize for my painting 'Winter Sun'... that's three shows for three awards, yay!
"...On a dim and distant hillside the wild horses racing yet,
With the man from Snowy River at their heels..."
