Good evening all, the time has come to talk to you about some updates and changes that have happened in the last couple of months.

Firstly, my girlfriend and I have parted ways, it was a mutual agreement that we both felt needed to happen and we're working on being just friends now.

End of July we moved the girls to a new yard some 20/30mins away in Wargrave, Berkshire. It's much friendlier than our old place and the girls are ten times happier than they were when we were making the decision to move. Meg is having some foot troubles now, which is a bit of a worry, with the location being super gravel orientated and more road work than we had before. As I'm only a sharer, I'm having a really difficult time trying to persuade her owner (also a good friend) to front shoe her. I'm going to make a poll about this because I want to know what everyone thinks, good or bad - I need serious help in this case!

I have a massive list of people to thank for my birthday wishes :) you're all superstars and I will get round to you all very soon with thanks. <3 especially to those of you who made me art and images in dedication, I have seen them (thank you) but I'm also snowed under right now, so please bear with me :)

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague and myself were called into my bosses office and point blank accused of bullying his daughter. Not only was this a shock, but I found out that a lot of the things I had told her at the gym or in the pub had somehow found their way back to daddy (my boss) and she had been two-faced to all of us. The bullying consisted of, but was not limited to, ignoring her when we started the day, not saying morning, not including her in conversations about the office, making her cry, accusing her of getting parts of her job wrong, talking in the office, not talking in the office, creating an atmosphere by not talking in the office, not asking her how her holiday was, talking about tv program's she didn't watch and not interacting with her when she wanted to talk about tv shows that we didn't watch, not inviting her out to lunch, talking about her behind her back.... Etc etc. the list went on for over 10 minutes. It was pointless trying to argue your point because he was having none of it, so we were marked down and sent back to work, needless to say my wish to work there has now been slashed by 89% and I'm looking for a job elsewhere. Two weeks later, and two tech guys get called in for pretty much the same thing. If the whole work place is "bullying" your daughter, then surely your daughter is the problem!??! There are 13 people in our company, 8 are looking for a new job... Says a lot doesn't it?

The people at the new yard we've moved to have helped me set up my equine photography business; Facebook.com/VickiClarkeEquinePhotography and one of the lecturers has enabled me to accompany her on her XC clinics to build up a client base. I couldn't ask for a better set of friends right now ~ with real life (bringing home the bacon) work treating me as a spare part this was just what I needed to set me on the right track again.

I took Ozzy to the beach with friends at the weekend for my birthday, it was brilliant and I really think (I really hope) he had fun with the other doggies and playing in the sea, running around in the sun :) In the week leading up to the trip he wasn't too well and I really hoped he'd be better to take with me. He's not well though, there isn't long left with my little man and it's heart-wrenching to watch. He's got kidney disease and is slowly losing not only weight, but condition too. He's as skinny as a rake and it looks like we don't feed him. But no matter how much he does eat he just can't keep the weight on. 😢 It's tough on the family, he's a part of this family and I had foolishly thought he would defy all reason and live forever... We're making the most of the time we have left; and if that means frequent beach trips with doggie friends, I am most certainly gonna do it, time and time again :)

My commissions are still on hold, I owe a lot of people a lot of things, so they'll be that way for the foreseeable future (I'm sorry!) those who have a slot it has been honoured and put under "other" and stamps are coming soon too, after this current batch I shake not be making any more for groups unless specifically agreed before payment. I just don't have the time to keep changing it again and again months down the line because the members have changed.

I'm around, even if I'm not posting all the time, I read comments and journals and send notes and read them too, but I do not always have the time to answer them and I'm sorry for that too. Quite a few people have asked me about commissions and trades in the last couple of weeks and I'm afraid I'm going to have to say no here and let that be that. The time constraints these last couple of months have doubled and what time I find to play on photoshop I lose interest in a piece in a matter of hours. I miss you all and think of you often and wish only for a little more time to enjoy what really matters; soon I hope, soon.

Thank you for reading x

Oh, and P.S. there is a new GoPro video up on my YouTube channel.... It's a slo mo cantering video.... Muscle movements, shadow slo mo, mane movements, lens flares all that damn smexy 120fps of it and all!!! ;) check it out here:

Today, after nearly 14 months of growth and at a length of 83cm from root to tip, I had my hair cut.... Not the most amazing feat I know, but this wasn't just any hair cut; I grew it for that extended length of time so that when the time came my hair could be sent off to the Little Princess Trust for a little prince or princess. From the hair donations that LPT receive they'll make wigs for children who gave lost their hair through illnesses such as the big C. Tomorrow I'm sending 36.5cm (14.3in) of braided hair to LPT for this cause...









I feel liberated now!! Shorter hairrrrrrr!! ^^

Questions asked by :icontwilight-veil: Twilight-Veil

1. If you could have a companion pet, who would be with you your entire life, completely friendly, and it could be any animal in the entire world what would you choose?
Totally completely and utterly a maned wolf - if Isramii actually existed it would make my year, life ^^

2. Favorite: book, movie, and song?

Movie: The Last of The Mohicans OR Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Song: "Prosthetic Love" by Typhoon followed very closely by "Miles Away" by Years Around The Sun

Off!!! Totally off, even in Winter!

8. Where's your favorite place in the whole world?
For a long time I would have said the latest place I had travelled, I would never had said right here where I was born, but as I've gotten older I've realised that my favourite place to be in the whole world is with the people I love. I could travel to some far flung country and stay for a time, but I don't think I would be any happier about it, I used to always think that my fav place was the west coast of Canada... I've been twice and my god I think I could die there and die happy (ish) but the reality of it is the world is a VERY big place when you've got no one to share it with (and friends and family are miles away) and everything you thought you chased to that place ended up being just as good back home anyway.

9. Would you rather be a werewolf or vampire?
wereWolf!! BRING IT ON!!!

10. Which would you prefer: living in a post-apocalyptic large city alone or post-apocalyptic forest in the middle of nowhere alone?
God I HATE the city! I'll take the forest any damn day!

A couple of days after I wrote my last journal my tablet broke - it seemed that no matter what I did to resolve it, it had zero pen pressure and the cursor would wander (frequently) like a ghost even when I wasn't touching it. I installed new drivers, uninstalled them, uninstalled everything, reinstalled everything... to no avail. Just when I had resigned myself to no artwork for quite some time (possibly never again (as I had tried another tablet (work one) in place of mine and that too had issues) my computer rejected a perfectly good tablet, who's to say it wouldn't reject any others I tried to install?!), a frantic session of uninstalling, anything that may have impacted it in such a way, insued... I plugged the tablet back in and without any effort it worked (without the updated driver (I'm still convinced that was the culprit all along!)) and I spent the entire night till the early hours of the next morning painting a tiger.

My point is.... that when faced with the really real situation of possibly never being able to make art again I realised what I do have, in art, in friends, in inspiration and kind, so so kind people who I barely know and some who I've known for years. I doubted myself because I lived up to the expectations more and more. Everytime I submitted a piece of work I relied on good press, I craved the favs and comments like they were a drug and that I would only be "good enough" if I got a lot of them. I feel ashamed that I was drawn into the popularity contest that only keeps getting harder day by day.

No amount of words, gestures or heartfelt thank you's could thank the following people enough for their kindness;

I've read all of your comments, in fact I read them over and over in the last couple of weeks, I'm sorry I've not replied ~ I should have to begin with, and I will in the up and coming days reply to each and every one of you because, if anything, you deserve my respect for giving me some of your time, your advice and your love. You will never know how much I appreciate it :heart:

~~

In other news; I bought a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition last month; I'm still getting to grips with it, the way it works, the way it fits, how it films, how it takes pictures etc. There's a lot to learn and practise with till I'll be anywhere good enough (NOTHING like a Canon....!!!!) But here's my 1st successfully edited video from this morning's ride out.... (it's best viewed in 720p)

My journal is called "save me" purely for this girl here..... You could never imagine the feeling of freedom unless you've ridden and formed a bond with a horse - Megan's known for her ear dancing.... and in the last couple of months, she's been my saving grace <3

Lately I feel myself falling out of favour with my artwork.
I try, but cannot seem to find the rhythm needed, to continue at the pace of some of the artists on here.
I frequently try to better myself ~ new techniques, new inspiration, new stock etc. ~ but even more frequently fall by the way side.
I've tried to keep up; tried not to let the fall in favs affect what I submit next time.
I try to ignore the rude comments that some people leave and when I can't I hide them.
I always wanted to become a graphics designer... but no one will hire me...
And each and every day my confidence in myself and my work is being knocked for six.
I thought I was learning new things from truly great artists but I am only a miserable copy of what they continue to achieve.
The more I stick around the more I understand that I am the old generation of art that should have run it's course a million moons ago.

And that? That is another form of disappointment that I can't keep living up to.

Whilst everyone makes headway, I'm being washed out to sea and I swear I've forgotten how to swim.

~

After this last kiri prize, I can't do characters for a while. I can't get the style right and no matter how hard I try and how good I think something looks it's not AT ALL how it should have turned out. I can't do hair, and I can't do colours, I can't make your character something amazing because my artwork isn't amazing and you shouldn't want it as bad as you do.

I need room to breathe. I'm sorry.

So I though I'd drop by and give y'all a few 'teaser' photographs that I plan to make into stock as soon as I get home. I'm on Skye at the moment (the same Skye they used for the landscapes in the movie Prometheus!) and today was one of the finest days for photography in all existence - I cannot wait to share all this images with you when I get back home (if I even ever want to come home that is!! ;))

So here you are... Enjoy! ;)

I feel that you probably should all know that I lied.....

I'm not going to Scotland at all; where I'm actually going is somewhere much more sinister....

See I have an obsession and recently that obsession has become more and more affective of my moods and my violent behaviour if I don't have more of the thing I've become obsessed with...

It's sad really that it has come to this, but I'm checking myself in to a hospital before this gets really out of hand and I will be attending WTOA (Washi Tape Obsessives Anonymous) meetings till I'm able to curb this constant need...

I even caved and bought more of it just this afternoon.... This is how serious this is becoming... It's ruining my life....

So I'll see you when I see you...

I'm out!

April Fools!!! ;)

Well, it's exactly 12 days until I take a road trip (a hella lotta driving) up to Scotland for 2 weeks!!
LovesRizz and I leave on the 6th April and return on the 19th April. We are quite literally driving everywhere!! A night here, a day there, sleeping around if you must! :giggle:

Our 1st stop is Carlisle at 5hrs away, then we hit Glasgow, the following day we're heading further up north to Fort William (Glencoe & Glenfinnian ftw!), round to the Isle of Skye for a long relaxing couple of days, then round Loch Ness and up to Inverness, hopping down to Ballater on our way to Perth and then down to Edinburgh before the long ass 7-8hr journey home!! :)


(my car's actually black and not a Nissan!)

For obvious reasons (in the car all day, no PC etc) I won't have time for artwork but we're driving up hill and down dale for a vast majority of this trip so think of all the stock photos I'll take!^^ - please bear with me on that front as I also won't have very much access to deviantART in that time either :(

If it's vitally important that you get in touch with me (someone selling my work to Hollywood for free! (Yeah right!) or you've found my missing £1,000,000,000 I won on the lottery last week! (I can wish...)) contact Yewrezz or Esveeka they have my mobile no and can contact me that'a way. If it's not vitally important then have a blast whilst I'm away and I'll be back soon :)

If anyone wants to meet up for coffee/something stronger (lol!), I'm sticking around Portree, Inverness & Edinburgh for a couple of days so contact me for the dates and we'll meet up!

And I do believe that's it... Catch y'all later! ;)

Holeeee Schmoleee is correct...


The lovely i-mi & equally lovely BLACKNIGHTINGALE81 suggested my piece:

for a DD and boy oh boy is this a milestone! I've been here a while... (like a piece of old furniture that never fades enough to warrant throwing it away!) and I've received DD's before (2009 & 2013) - but never for a piece of equine art (which I'm sure you can agree sums up a vast majority of my gallery?) - plus for it to be a DD on a piece of work that I'm particularly proud of is a massive bonus and I cannot thank you enough; i-mi & BLACKNIGHTINGALE81 for being such sweetheart's and suggesting it and Emerald-Depths for being a gem and featuring it! You've made this day one of the best in the history of my life here at deviantART ^.^ I'm gaining favs a mile a minute and sending a big fond...

Hello! & Welcome!!


To all those deviants who have watched me today, watched me yesterday, last week, last month, last year - and all those years ago, those who have been with me since the beginning and to everyone of my friends and fellow artists out there who are just as talented as me if not more so!

You're all :star:'s!!

Hello All! Just a little journal to say that I'm writing again - or fan fiction at least - I started a couple of days ago and am about to submit my 4th Chapter, if you're interested it's based on the book series "The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Clare and the most recent movie on the 1st book.... you can take a gander here:

Underwater love, or not quite... No in fact it's not really love at all considering it's affecting a vast majority of people here in the South of the UK. I'm talking about floods and flooding; I live next to the River Thames so naturally on a flood plane and naturally our garden is 60% underwater, we have a long garden and a raised house so I am thankful but many do not, many are wading, many have been forced out of their homes, some cars have broken down in the middle of the road as they passed through a flood and some have died.

Some are worse off than us, but right here right now there is this; my village, and those in close proximity to me are flooded, the routes leading in and out of these villages are passable (sometimes and if they are you'll need a 4x4!) police have closed off all routes leading into Cookham, my next door village and unfortunately that's where the horses are... Their fields are lakes, the hay ran out yesterday and the haylage is running out; with over 40 mouths to feed and only a few 4x4's that can get through the water, steams, lakes, the tractor has been bringing in what little he can from other neighbouring villages but everyone is in the same boat. (Or on the same island!)

Yesterday I caught a ride from my village across the water with a lovely lady who owned a Mitsubishi big enough to cross the ever growing expanse and was able change the horses water and give them a little haylage, this is how it goes for now, there is no turnout; the horses would be swimming, I rely on other worried horse owners to get me across there as my car isn't big enough to cross the water to get to the bridge. We're expecting another lashing of rain at the weekend that will raise the flood water even higher and everyone is on standby should we need to evacuate the farm and get the horses out.

These are just some of the photos of how bad it is out there, not just for us but for everyone involved...

To all who have been awesome and supportive of my life choices my family included.
To those who I met, loved and lost all in quick succession.
To those who I pissed off and angered (my boss)
To Verum Dicere (though that's not her name anymore) to whom I was a complete see you next Tuesday and to whom I cannot apologise to anymore as I don't know where she is. I'm sorry.
To those who reconnected and to burying hatchets.
To all those amazing artists out there who continue to inspire me, keep up the great work!
To horses and creativity galore, to staying up late and watching join me's, to not sleeping and doing art instead!!
To friends, endless friends who are nothing short of awesome!
To love and everything it has yet to behold.. ❤️
To all my watchers, supporters, friends lost and my stars...

Wishing you all the very best that 2014 can offer! 🎉

With much love and blessings for the new year! 🎊

Shine bright creatives! ;)

After a  discussion in join.me, a couple of pokes and a poll this afternoon I have resurrected my old stock account to submit the million and one images I wade through on a daily basis on my PC, in the hopes that other people might find some use for them besides them sitting there gathering dust till I get the time to use them! ^^

I've mass submitted a few images already tonight - wings - I know everyone wanted those above everything else! (= I'll take requests and suggestions on future stock images in a couple of months - for now I'm just bulking out my gallery with what I already have.

Take a gander here:

To everyone to came to watch my join me today I'm truly sorry that it ended as abruptly as it did! It appears that when I run photoshop I don't have enough memory (even though I have 4gb!) to run anything else in conjunction with it. First it crashed JM and then kicked me out of iTunes. Adobe Photoshop is a jealous piece of s**t and can't share! Especially when I'm running something as big as the manip I was doing today. Very sorry guys and gals! :(

In other news, I'm leaving.... work. I'm leaving work! Not all work, just the place I spend 40 hrs of my week (+8 more hours of unpaid overtime!). Think of something corrupt and I can assure you that my workplace could run against your thought of corrupt in a race and quite probably win. I never intended for it to be a permanent position and after the majority of the workforce was made redundant in Feburary, our paychecks were slashed and promises of that pay back again by June not honoured - I knew it was no longer a place I wanted to work. If things go well I intend to be out by January (which involves applying for at least 6 jobs on a daily basis!), so this is why I've not been around all that much this week, or last or even this entire month. It sucks when work gets in the way of artistic creativity but because I was so bummed out about the job I wasn't allowing my artistic flare to bloom. Sad really....

That said, it should be on the up and up now... more artwork, less tears, less stress and more creativity... does anyone here have Pinterest??? ;)

Whilst I'm journaling I should mention that some pretty awesome people have made me some pretty awesome gifts lately! Especially Esveeka with her cute little pixel ponies!! AND MY GOD I want to make a mini unicorn cupcake pony thing... NOW! Check these out.... of Filine & Orealis!! :D

And not to mention (well actually I paid for it sooo.... lol but still,... Amazinly epic Yewrezz and her fantastic skill to make my babies come alive!!! I watched it on join me but NEVER in a million years imagined it to turn out so gorgeous! Check it out.....




ANDDDDD last but not least (whilst I'm on a journal of random sh*t!) if you haven't ever tried Daim's! Then you  gotta and if you have then you gotta love them as much as I do! It's a rule! ;)



Adios! until next time! x

So sorry to all who came to watch the join.me and it kicked you out after a while!! My photoshop can be very temperamental and often clashes with join me for no reason whatsoever! ><

In any case, I've lost my muse mojo now :( any one have any tips for artists block!? I just can't seem to shake it back to life with music this time!

*afraid she's lost her artistic flare..*
