Sneak Preview – Ideal Home Show

Sneak Preview Ideal Home Show N40
Sneak Preview Ideal Home Show N40

Hi there everyone!

Well the day has finally arrived to set up for The Ideal Home Show.

It certainly is a work day! The RDS Hall where the show takes place turns into a building site. Everyone has a job to do and every tool is put to full use. Within the space of a few hours, chaos turns into a certain type of order.

Just a few finishing touches for tomorrow.

The lighting will be on.

There will be a place for everything with everything in its place!

Sneak preview to Ideal Home Show, Donna McGee - Ta dah!

We slip out quietly carrying our quota of tools – drills and ladders and God knows what else!

We have a nice presentation (I hope) on our Stand N40.

This stand is right beside all the talks on interior design etc.

Tomorrow I shall enjoy listening to all those tips. See more here

Only Three Days- Ideal Home Show

Only three days to Ideal Home Show launch!

 

Undying Love - Oil/Mixed Media on Block Canvas 36 x 12 inches
Undying Love – Oil based Mixed Media on Block Canvas 36 x 12 inches

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.

(Just a few tickets left –  Contact me if you would like free tickets)

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!
