"Many thanks Sally, Sean, Kevin and Nora. You know, in all the years I drove through Balbriggan before they bypassed it with the M1, I've never been down to the harbour! It was nice to see it eventually and the railway bridge is a lovely tribute…"

"Wonderful, John.  Your darks in the foreground turned out very well and the sky and the water reproduces the chill of the day (too) well."

Hi John, definitely we have to meet during your visit. Let me know when you are planning to go to Italy, so we try to arrange some paint-outs.

Here many art schools, definitely bring discipline into work. In most dominated Classical Painting, but not in all schools, depends which one you choose really.

Architecture of Fiesole is like that, in small town they tried to fit everything :).

Thanks John. Happy New Year again!

Thank you for your nice advice about fresh flower and card. They really liked it.

Warm regards.

John

 

(I've tried email you directly thru Plein Eire but doesn't seem to be operative today).

A colleague can't take up his spot at People's Art on Stephen's Green this weekend - he's offered it to me - tho I think it will be too cold - I'd like to try it.
 
I asked Tom Scott if I could delegate it to him bit he's otherwise engaged- he suggested I ask you! Could you take charge of Plein Eire to Farmleigh on Sat am? If you can't -no prob - I'll break off from Green.


Best

Thanks John for arranging next Sat - and esp arrangement with clubjouse. I've added it to Events and PE Dublin page, as I didn't see them there.

See you Sat!
