The Skelligs – Work in Progress – not going to make it this time!

Yes, it’s that time of year again …

The summer has arrived,  sun is shining,  garden is blooming,  birds and bees buzzing around!  Barbeques and garden furniture get a facelift  in preparation for  garden parties with friends and family.

Oh, the joy of long summer evenings!

To make you feel even better, the People’s Art May 2017 is on this weekend.

I have been busy painting, varnishing and framing my paintings in readiness for the busy season ahead.

This weekend marks the first of the outdoor exhibitions in St. Stephens Green, Dublin City Centre. There will be hundreds of original paintings for sale and great value to be had.

Come along and meet the artists this weekend in Dublin.

The People’s Art Exhibition this weekend in Dublin

The weather is good and the outdoor art exhibition around St. Stephens Green, Dublin this weekend promises to be great.

I have been busy preparing for this exhibition and took full advantage of the sunshine in the garden today.

No matter how much room I thought I had, it was never enough! Frames, paint, brushes, hanging cords, screws, screwdrivers, tape, wrapping …. the list just goes on.  A busy day, a fun day and everything all packed up for the morning.

If you’re in Dublin this weekend, be sure to drop by.  There will be over a hundred artists exhibiting around St. Stephens Green with  super original and unique paintings to suit everyone’s taste.

Nepal Fundraiser Raffle – Winner Announced

Following on from the  aftermath of the powerful earthquake in Nepal, I wanted to find some way that I could help this horrible situation, I couldn’t bear to think about the devastation that this earthquake had left behind and I just wanted to do something, anything!

It was not long ago since I had visited this great country – I got to know and love the people – I wept for their poverty and I rejoiced in their good nature, their sensitivity, their gentile ways and sense of hope. 

I decided that I would create a painting of Nyatapola Temple, one of the few buildings that remained intact, I would raffle it and this would help to fundraise for this worthy cause.
