Make an offer......

Camera Shy
16'' x 9'', Coloured Pencil
t Laura Hardie

Having a bit of a clear out at chez Hardie this week and came across this drawing. It’s an old(ish) one having completed it in 2009. I like to think I’ve come some way with my coloured pencils and improved over the years but I still really like this piece – more than enough to put my name to it and offer it for sale. Which is what I have decided to do and you can name the price. Better than keeping it stored away in my portfolio probably never seeing the light of day again, I like it too much for that. 

So, if interested, make me an offer either here on my blog, over on my FB page or by email and it will go to the highest offer. Simple as that and all offers accepted. You have until Wednesday (28th) to bid after which it will hopefully be making its way to a new home.

The Horse in Art 2012

Yesterday saw the opening of the Society of Equestrian Artists Annual Exhibition at the Menier Gallery in London.

I’ve been promising myself for a good few years that I’d enter work into this exhibition but for one reason or another never quite made it. This year I got there and submitted two of my drawings, ‘On Show’ and ‘Beau’, and was delighted to have both accepted. Had even more good news when I heard that ‘On Show’ sold on the first day in the gallery and will, I believe, be making its way to Australia after the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until 1st December and is well worth a visit if you can make it down there. If not you can view, and purchase, all the wonderful paintings, drawings and sculptures online at the SEA website. I’m still trying to work out a way to get down there before it ends, and remaining hopeful, but have a friend and her camera who will be taking photos for me if I can’t. So I WILL see that red dot one way or another :)

Has it really been that long since my last post *cough*, where does the time go!! 

I’ve been kept busy both behind and away from the drawing board these past weeks, which is always good, and have a few things to share with you. But don’t think I’ll put it all in the same post, could be picture overload if I did. So just a quick post today to say ‘hello’ and to show you Jaz, a gorgeous Lab I had the pleasure of drawing a while back – well beginning of October to be exact, though seems longer now.
