Photo of Leon Holmes and Antti Rautiola with Tony Robinson of AITO and this handsome paintiing's proud new owner.

The painting was painted collaboratively by these 2 artists during AITO'13 Quick Draw in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. The painting was auctioned on the spot and fetched €570 which the artists donated to Console suicide bereavement charity. The artists also managed to complete their own paintings during trhe 2-hour time limit.

More great news Valerie. Both metric and imperial available there.

I can't wait.  Have to get the suitcase down from the attic - and be a bit more organised with my framing this year.  Imperial sizes and metric sizes are an important shade different to each other.

Oh tony, you're being modest. Spectrum Art (Tony's biz) has all sorts of great art supplies AND framing! And , you pass right by it on your way to anywhere in Wexford. Just a hop, skip, and jump from T. Morris pub, Whites Hotel, grocery, pharmacy, department stores, etc. Paint, brushes, panels, mediums, drawing supplies, books, you name it. No worries people. They think of everything at this event. And, prepare yourself for the best fish and chips... Not at the art store of course. :)
