Sally, just thought I would add a few photos  from a wonderful location sat last, and it was great to get the tour of the animals as well as such a wonderful choice of subjects to paint.

Listoke Paint out with PEBV

Thank you Sally for introducing us in the past to this wonderful place and for our return paint out today, I don't think I have ever seen such beautiful chicks all in one place before and those reflections in the puddles were beautiful.  The sun came out and what a lovely atmosphere there was after the rain, the colours were magical…

Balbriggan Paint out

Thank you Caroline for organising a great location today.  Normally I shy away from harbours but I have never seen such a lovely array of boats and think that it is worth the agony of learning to draw boats and get out of our comfort zone - the light bouncing around them was glorious and how easy Sean makes painting them look with his beautiful paintings.

Michael painting boats, he has eyes in the back of his head :)…

Hi Nora, my name might be familiar to you because my brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law live in Leixslip. Patsy & Elma(yoga teacher) have moved now but we used to visit them in Leixslip.

Hi Nora I see you might attend Woodville House paint out tomorrow.  It is nowhere near Wells House. As you arrive in New Ross from the Kilkenny side i.e. over the bridge, go straight ahead into the main street, turn left at the 98 monument and keep on that road. There will be a junction to your right about a mile??  down that road and a pub called the Ferry Inn. The entrance to Woodville is just beyond that on your right. Hope to see you.

If you coming from Wexford side turn right at the roundabout and follow the road straight til it joins the above road at the Ferry Inn.

Hi Norah

Glad you found our little chat helpful.

It was such a lovely day at the Art In the Open in Graig. it was nice to have time to chat with you and other artist, especially as i was not painting.  My shoulder is improving every day, thank you for asking.  Take care of yourself and have fun painting.

Hi Nora,

Many thanks for organising a great day in Maynooth.  I really enjoyed it and look forward to many more.  I would love a mid week paint-out.  My email is bmcc35@yahoo.ie.  See you soon.

Hi Norah
What a thrill you are my first Plein Air friend... Thank you. I couldnt find anyone so I went to Powerscourt on a quest to find people with easels...but no .. its my own fault. I miscalculated my journey time from Naas.
If there is an event North Wex or any area within an hour from Naas I would be so grateful if you let me know.
Am doing a portrait at the moment and having such a prob getting the brush to the canvas. Scared...
Did you ever have that prob
