Art exhibition, hammerhead shark, and rally obedience competition!

I’ve done a lot this easter, but I haven’t felt busy or stressed – on the contrary, I’ve had time to try new things. Like drawing sea animals and color them with watercolor pencils. Let’s start there:

   

This hammer head shark is part of a series, and you can see them as I make them on my Instagram @artbytck .

Easter has been about more art than my drawings: I’vr been part of an art exhibition at my dog club. Four artists, four days! Here is some of my work:

The photos to the left are mine.

In the south of Sweden it’s a tradition to show art during easter, and it’s a lot of fun driving around and visit studios and artists. It’s been a dream of mine to show my work during easter for a long time, and finally it’s happened!

You can see all of the artwork in this movie:

And last, but not least, we have competed. The Princess and I defied the snow and the cold, and we both did really well! The first rally-competition in a long time, and it was very nice to see that some of the things we have been training really worked!

This was my goals and my training plan up to the day:

As you can see, we stuck to my plan until the very end, and it worked. Safety goal – no problems. Realistic goal – almost! I put my feet wrong in one place, and she moved just a little in the stand, but SO MUCH BETTER than it used to be! We’re on the right track 🙂

My evaluation: what worked well, what do we need to train more, and what was the best things. On the opposite side the course and the critique. She did so many moments beautifully, she was happy, she was quiet!

Note to self: do not keep her dummy for retrieving in the same pocket I keep the tug-toy. Misunderstanding is easy…:D

And I’ve planned our starts for this year, and made a plan for next competition (obedience).

A bit late, but still: happy after-easter everyone!
