Renewal of my studio insurance in January will be €616.53. There's no way I'm paying that. Have you got studio insurance? What are you paying? Any better deals around in Ireland?Read on...

Doom and gloom...

Wexford town Paintout Riverbank Hotel at Riverbank hotel

November 4, 2018 from 11am to 5pm
It looks like we could need shelter on Sunday with showers forecast so Wexford town seems like a good plan. Meet at the riverbank hotel for coffee at 11am. The tide will be coming in and full at 4pm. I’m hoping to paint some of the boats on that side of the bridge but if it’s too wet might venture into the town for cover.See More

"Will there be different classes of steam? Presumably there will be different trials depending on the steam. Can one just show up and casually let off steam? What about condensation in the marquees? Will there be a problem with mould?"

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your Friend request and your messages regarding the AITO Accomm. I have looked at the places on the website but most is for twin share or the hostels are not avaliable for the whole week. they have bookings in the middle of the dates.

I will keep trying :)

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for that.   I will talk to her about it again.  By the way, I looked at your video re Tony, it was great.   He is so unassuming, was great to get the video.  Wouldnt it be grand to be able to go to Holland and paint!

Sally pointed out the Glendalough date I suggested would be the Bank Hol weekend - I'll be around - but would it lead to lower attendance ? - should we put it back to second weekend?
