Being very much a self-taught artist - and also being a bit of a rebel rather than a conformist - goes against me a bit in the confidence stakes when painting with a group. Everyone else seems so…Read on...

I'd say the coffee shop was the better option. ;-(

11turned up and all painted around the green until we were all rained off. Needless to say Ray, Peter, Des, John, and Stephen wanted to see the match and us ladies...well the coffee shop beckoned. Then a few of us met for a pint later...a not overly productive but very sociable day! John will be hosting a Cong outing !

Hi all, a late reminder I know....the Linenhall art centre paint out tomorrow in castlebar. Meet at the Linenhall cafe...ask a local for directions in the town centre... And then paint at the 'Green' near the courthouse. Call me if you need any help. There ll be an exhibition after this one in the LInenhall, should the turnout be good. I know there are TWO matches on, but ART is much much more important. ART lasts forever, matches come and go.

Hi Kieran, I failed to notice your message re Derryclare. That would be lovely. My personal preference is for the Sunday. Shall I add it to our diary? Pity you can't come today, the hot sun had me awake at sixth is morning and it's already very warm. I m bringing my swimming gear!

Hi Patricia, my diary is free but it is a huge drive from Westport. I dsay the 9th is better for me and I will try to make it, even make a weekend out of it .I have the impression the kinvara painters don't get these messages and need to be encouraged closer to the date. But so what if only 3 or 4 turn up, that's the typical number. Hope to see you tomorrow!

Ok, for those who are interested the RNLI Family Day in Kinvara is July 31st.  This is a great day out with loads of events to raise funds for the RNLI.  Cruinniu na mBad is from 19th to 21st August.  

So how would July 9th or 16th suit for Kinvara paint out?
