The year I turned 30, June became the month of my wedding. Two days, in fact, before my 30th birthday I married my wonderful husband Brent. And then...just before my 36th birthday...I gave birth to my son, Jackson. I could have asked for no more wonderful present than that. Every year in June, to be reminded of the moment when he entered our lives, changing it forever. 16 years ago he became the center of our lives and added dimension to the world! Next June I will not be with him for his 17th birthday, as he is heading to Milan, Italy in September, to spend a year abroad. So this year we will be sure to celebrate together.
3 years ago....just a few days before my 49th birthday, my mother passed away. And June changed a bit. Now it carries a bittersweet taste. Sadness...not overwhelming the happy, but tempering it. Dulling the edge of excitement. This year I intend to make some new happy memories in June.
So in this month of so much...I wish to remind you...that you can read the newest article written about my work in the May/June issue of Rural Heritage Magazine. The feature was written by fellow equine artist, Bethany Caskey. You can purchase a copy of the magazine at your local Tractor Supply or online at http://www.ruralheritage.com/ . Take a look in your local newstand for the June issue of American Art Collector magazine. Inside you will find a wonderful issue featuring equine artwork and there is an ad for Terry Lindsay's Equidae Gallery that features one of my pieces. There is one more weekend you can see my work at the Maplebrook School in Amenia, NY in the Evoking Spirit art show. As part of the HITS on the Hudson Equine Art Show and Auction, my work Vintage: Cabellero is on exhibit at the Red Onion Restaurant at 1654 Route 212 between Woodstock and Saugerties, NY. It will remain there until the beginning of July when it will move to the Fletcher Gallery in Woodstock, NY before being auctioned off on September 10th to benefit the Family of Woodstock.
