Showcasing a Naive Artist and Celebrating a Horse Race

I know I said I was going to have a couple of days away from the blog but I was keen to share the mail with you.

From the Postie

I am constantly reminded that we live in an incredible world. Two days ago we saw an image of a painting that had been sent from London, created by a Welshman and featured Carmel Mission in Carmel-on-the-Bay (California). Check it out here if you missed this post.

Today the mail is from Chris of New York who has just sent me notification that there is an Exhibition of the works of Antonio Ligabue (1899-1965) being held this month (November) in The Octagon Gallery in the town of Bibbiano in Reggio Emilia, near Parma, Italy.

You can check our the early blog posts which featured some of Antonio Ligabue's works here and here.

And to conclude today, a painting of Archer the first horses to win the Melbourne Cup.

The Hero Image today shows you some more paintings created by Antonio Ligabue.

And now I am going to have a break for a couple of days while I prepare for a very important birthday which I will tell you about on Thursday.
