Hi everybody

Two months of the year gone already! Here the weather has been beautifully cool considering that it was summer, and the rain has made the countryside lush and green and and my garden too- I have a new crop of healthy weeds! In Brisbane it has been somewhat warmer I am given to understand, and my little grandson must be in a good paddock for he is growing like a mushroom- a somewhat hefty one at that!

There are 3 upcoming events that we plan to participate induring the next 3 months.

1.


"LEST WE FORGET" Art Exhibition

Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th April 2013

Morpeth Gallery, phone (02) 4933 1407

5 Green Street Morpeth NSW 2321

see stunning paintings of Light Horse, aeroplanes from 1st and 2nd World Wars and Vietnam War, as a tribute to our veterans. Both original paintings and reproductions of originals will be available for sale. FREE ENTRY  

 

For the first time ever some of our original Light Horse paintings will be for sale.


 2. Mick Bradford's Heavy Horse Demonstration Charity Day, Yangan www.heavyhorseday.com
  Sunday 5 May, 122 Swanfells Rd Yangan, Phone 07 4664 8209

This will be the 11th year that Mick Bradford has held this event on his property, to raise money for CareFlight and it gets bigger and better each year. Last year it was cancelled due to inclement weather, so here's hoping for sunshine. The Warwick Montrose Light Horse troop plan to have a display as well, so we'll have a mix of Light Horse and Heavy Horse prints on display and available for sale.


3. AIR AND LAND SPECTACULAR at Emu Gully
  Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th May

Here is a glimpse of Ron at work in the early stages of this painting...you can still see some of his drawing. This painting is almost finished, and will be part of the LEST WE FORGET exhibition- in its finished state of course.


I have been very busy with a number of oil painting commissions since my last newsletter, but have managed to finish some pastels, Here they are....

I have also discovered the delights of pure pastel pencil- excellent for very detailed work. I am currently working on a Pastel Pencil  piece called "Honouring His Heritage" which will be shown at the three events mentioned earlier, and in my next newsletter.


 There have been some changes to my website www.lighthorseart.com.au

  • The Paper Open Editions are no longer available The Canvas Editions have increased in price and a RRP (Recommended Retail Price) is listed. This is due to the fact that these prints are now being sold through Morpeth Gallery.
  • However because you are amongst that elite group of admirers of our artwork who have elected to receive this newsletter, you are elligible for a Members Discount. To get the discount just email me ], but do not go through the checkout.

I leave you with some few thoughts on art...

"When you are not rich, you buy either clothes that wear out or art that lasts forever."(Neal Patterson)

" The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. (William Faulkner))

"Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first." (Athur Schopenhauer )

"A picture is a poem without words." (Horace)

"There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept." (Ansell Adams)

"The more horrifying this world becomes, the more art becomes abstract." (Ellen Key)


  I hope that you have enjoyed this newsletter. Please feel free to share it with others, for your help is appreciated in bringing a greater audience for our work.

Cheerio for now

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.
