Hello Everybody,

Cooler Autumn weather has arrived here in Warwick, and Ron and I have been extra busy preparing for our exhibition with John Bradley at the Morpeth Gallery.

We took a trip down with a load of paintings a few weeks back, and Trevor introduced us to John and Maggie, and what a delightful and interesting couple they are to be sure. We even took the caravan out to their place that afternoon, had dinner with them and stayed overnight. Willy my beautiful Ragdoll cat soon made himself right at home and stared at their 2 dogs through the window - his presence had ousted them from their home! We had a delightful and relaxing trip there and back, travelling about 200km's a day and free camping. Willy had a ball! Since we've come home he thinks he's entitled to 2 walks a day instead of only one! Yes I take my cat for a walk on a very long lead- or more precisely, he takes me for a walk!


Ron has had to get his brushes busy, he is doing another painting for the exhibition after the sale of one of his paintings that was used in the advertising. It probably won't be finished, so he'll have it on the easel in progress at the exhibition. John will be painting something in oils and I will be working at the easel too... with pastels or pastel pencils I think...not sure what yet.

DVD's "How to Draw Horses" and "Painting Clydesdales In Pastel" with Jennifer Jowett ( yes that's me ....19 years ago and MUCH slimmer!) will also be showing and for sale.

The Bar Runners, Stubby Coolers, Coasters and Mouse Pads featuring Ron's "The Charge" will also be available and raising funds for the 11th Light Horse Warwick Montrose Troop.

Some thoughts on choices...we have no choice but to choose....

Life is a sum of all your choices.
- Albert Camus

To live is to choose.
But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for,
where you want to go and why you want to get there.
- Kofi Annan 

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Since you are the one who has to live with your choices ,be sure they are your own.-
 Alan Cohen

The Main Thing is to Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing.- Stephen Covey

Jennifer:

I picked up the print today from our nosy small town postal worker. "What did you get from Australia?" she asked. When I remarked that it was a print of the Australian Light Horse in WWI all that generated was a very puzzled look.
In any event the print is absolutely gorgeous . . . better "in person" than on the website! Thanks so much for sending it out so fast. Now I've got to make some wall space available . . .

Dear Mr. Marshall,

Your print on canvas "The Charge" was given to me at my retirement dinner by my officers of the Special Operations Component, Coral Springs Police Department in Coral Springs, Florida. Trully stunning rendition which captures the excitement of the moment while conveying a warmth of comeradeship to the end. It will hang in my study above my collection of King and Country Lighthorsemen collectibles.

I served 35 years with Coral Springs Police Department with the last four years as Captain of the S.O.C. which is 26 officers strong with various units (Tactical & Gang, K-9, Bikes and Substations).

Your painting made my day, thank you, F McK.
