I Got the Painting!

At the Lane's End Horse Trials in August, Napster was delighted to offer one of his prints, Yoga, Downward Dog, for the Silent Auction.

He always is keen to support Lane's End. He was born there, as a wild kitten in the hay barn. He was captured (literally, in mid-air leap), tamed, cared for, loved, before he tranferred to live with us at Bondi Village, where he was the only cat instead of one of several in the stable. It worked out well for everyone.
One of the competitors at the show, Kelly Plitz, is a dazzling artist in her own right. She creates big canvases, full of life and action, movement and colour, which she sells from her Dreamcrest Equestrian Centre in Port Perry.  A former Olympian with her amazing little mare Dial-A-Dream, Kelly now trains both horses and riders when she isn't working in her studio overlooking one of the indoor arenas.

Nancy was standing out on the cross country course, chatting with the course designer, when Kelly went galloping past.  Over her shoulder she shouted, "I GOT THE PAINTING!"

Because she was just that excited and pleased to be the successsful bidder on Napster's work.  He's thrilled, not just because the sale supported Lane's End in their fundraising for Breast Cancer Research, but because a fellow artist had given him such a thumbs up.
