Happy to Meet – Sorry to Part!

Happy to Meet – Sorry to Part!

Well,  the Ideal Home Show is over till next year.   I’m feeling nicely tired after the four days of chatting to so many visitors,  but  fondly looking back with some very nice memories.

Thank you to all the lovely people who visited my stand over the weekend.  I met all kinds of interesting people and had lots of fun.

A big thank you to Dublin Beds who were located beside me.  Following a “mishap” with my car, they very kindly made a delivery for me  and kept my customers very happy, along with their own.  How kind was that!

I enjoyed the craic too!

So now, I will retreat for a while and find a place for everything with everything in its place!

Hope to see you again at The Ideal Home Show next Spring.

I’m continuing to work away towards the launch of the Ideal Home Show this coming Friday.

Hectic but happy,  I thought I’d take some time out (by way of a little diversion) to tell you about the painting

“Undying Love”

Undying love side view Oil Painting Donna McGee

I have created many of these canvas flower paintings in the past.  So much so, that I have  similar paintings in my home as they hold  enchantment or magnetism that I am drawn to.

I had been commissioned to create some pieces for a business a long time ago.  Recently, I had the pleasure to see my paintings “in situ”

It was so pleasing to me to discover that the owner still loved the paintings all these years later.  They had taken on a life of their own and  become conversation pieces.

As an artist, there is nothing nicer than to get some positive feedback on where your paintings have travelled to and become a part of a new home or  business place.

It’s a   g-o-o-d   feeling!

I will have a selection of these paintings available at Ideal Home Show.

If you are in Dublin, come take a look and stop and chat for a while.

I’d love to see you.

Ideal Home Show – Working Away

 Working away for The Ideal Home Show

 

Still lots of finishing touches  to be done, not to mention  planning and organising but it’s all very exciting stuff.

The only thing to do :

Create a checklist!

  • How is the framer getting on with all the new work I gave him?
  • Check with printer – enough business cards? greeting cards?
  • Labels / name tags / prices ….
  • Layout – now that’s a big one to decide – what goes where and which paintings sit best together?
  • Will everything be ready on time ?

and on it goes …..

I am excited about the collection I will have at my Stand N40.

It will be an eclectic mix of paintings that I think you will like.

There will certainly be something for everyone.

This really is a great opportunity to get ahead of the posse as regards  Christmas  – shhhhh!  (I am whispering here),   but this   IS   the place to go to make your design changes for your home,  or  to get that  unique gift for Christmas before all the madness starts.

So do stop by my stand and take time for a chat.

Remember, the show runs for four days, so  come and say hello – and if you’ve missed the deadline to download free tickets, send me a message, and I will be happy to send some on to you.

See you then!

Clifden Arts Trail

Delighted to have my work in the window of Hehirs of Clifden  at the

Clifden Arts Festival

A short while ago, I had the  absolute delight to catch the Regatta in  the very charming village of   Roundstone in the heart of Connemara.  Since then,  I have gone mad painting Galway Hooker fishing boats because they are so majestic, beautiful and strong.

Roundstone is on the west coast of Connemara an area of outstanding natural beauty and inspiration for many artists with hills, valleys and beautiful coastlines.

The Galway hooker is a traditional fishing boat used in Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland. The hooker was developed for the strong seas there. It is identified by its sharp, clean entry, bluff bow, marked tumblehome and raked transom. Its sail plan consists of a single mast with a main sail and two foresails.

There are so many interesting  places to visit in Connemara, for example:

The Lone Rider 14 x12 Oil on canvas

The rugged, glacially sculpted backdrop to Roundstone is the majestic mountain of Errisbeg, which rises to almost 1,000 feet. No visit to Connemara is ever complete without a visit to the harbour village of Roundstone. It is an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful ice-age scoured and lake-strewn Roundstone Bog. South of the village the crescent-shaped beaches of Gurteen and Dog’s Bay and their intervening tombolo draw thousands each summer.
