Yes, my dream is coming true, I will have a few paintings on display at the Caracol Silver booth this year at the Devon Horse Show. For the next 10 days I will be working like a mad woman to finish a few new paintings, all will be based on photos I have taken at this prestigious show over the years. I have been going to Devon ever since I was a young child. My father worked for Mrs. Hope Scott and she would give us free tickets. Next to Christmas it was the highlight of my year (and still is).
So looking through boxes of old photos taken before digital cameras existed, I found some nice black and whites I wanted share. Had to scan these in so the quality isn't the best. I love the elegance of side saddle and it's still one of my favorite events to watch.
I noticed last year they don't wear the beautiful top hats anymore.
I suppose it's safer but doesn't look as pretty.
Please stop by the Caracol tent if you go, right near the exhibitor's entrance of the Dixon Oval.
