Hi Frank, Like Sally I was delighted to hear of your achievements at AITO this year. Well done - your work speaks for itself - and deserves this recognition. Best regards Pat

Heartiest Congraulations to Frank Hallinan Flood  who won, not one but two prizes in Wexford from all in Boyne Valley group.   He won the voucher for the Quick Draw and the 'Bronze Medal' in the Mayoiral Award competition.

Very well done Frank and please forgive us if we clam a little pride by association.

Well spotted Frank...it was the Alcazar in Malaga...not on the scale of others like Granada or Seville but absolutely beautifully Mococcan and overlooking the city and the bay...and most people just think Malaga is an airport..there's also a small Picasso museum with his early work close by the Alcazar

Frank, that's a wonderful painting -as usual.  I love the unusual tiered arrangement of the pier, lighthouse, etc. And the dark blue and yellow are nicely sinister.  Hope you weren't caught i a thunderstorm.  How is it its not posted on the home page??
