She attends many horse and hound related events gathering reference with her camera for future paintings. She also foxhunts with the Casanova Hunt.

This week’s cover, Paddock Shadows, is an oil painting from Thompson’s private collection. She was inspired by the play of the horse’s shadow on the board fence.

Thompson’s paintings have been exhibited at the Museum of Hounds and Hunting, the AKC Museum of the Dog, and the Cross Gate Gallery/ MFHA traveling art shows, among many others.
