On the very sad occasion of Terrence Gillespies funeral last Wednesday, the suggestion was made by Michael Keogh, that we have a paintout in The Irish National Stud, in remembrance of Terry. Michael has been kind enough to make the arrangements.We suggest meeting in the Irish National Stud Cafe from 11amam. Exit M7 on Junction 13. Hope you can make it there ! See More

"Thanks Dick, the weather was very kind in Rush on that day, which gave me time to work on the detail. Although my cabbages are somewhat fresher and more more robust than those that were in the field!"
"Congrats John on your runner-up award for your painting of farmyard at Rush, well done. This one of Howth is my favourite of your three posts. Very nice sky and also like your Martello tower. Hope to see you at AITO soon."

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.
