Planning My China Trip and New Paintings

Hi all! Just thought I'd give you an update. Most of my time is dedicated to planning my wedding, but I have finished a commission...


This is a work in progress. 30k was won on this race- I'd want a painting too!
...

Most of my time has been going to planning my honeymoon. I was never one to daydream about my future wedding, but I've always dreamed of my honeymoon, and that hasn't changed. So I'm obsessed...

Part of the trip will be 4 days in beautiful Guilin/Yangshuo near the Li River. Ronald from Yangshuo Mountain Retreat took this beautiful picture close to where we'll be staying...

We're also planning on hiking in Huashan. You may have seen some of the pictures of this spectacular place from this amazing story. (Don't worry, we're not going to do the dangerous part!!!)

Huashan



This is the part we will NOT be attempting!




More our style : )

The race horses are fantastic. Even with a wedding coming up you just have to keep those brushes wet! Take great pictures and paint wonderful memories when you get back.
