King William’s Glen

"Thats wonderful Sally, That hint of colour on the windows invites you in from a cold day and the winter tree is lovely in its bareness. Charcoal seems the perfect mediium for this. Its a lovely area around there, very mystical"

Boyne Valley Clogherhead June 22

Plein Eire Boyne Valley at the RHA Dublin

Sally, Michelle, Bernadette, Anna, Frank, Noel and Brian at the RHA today with Franks sculpture (Noel and Brian, sorry you missed the photo). A photo or words do not do Frank's sculpture justice so it is well worth a visit. The whole exhibition is wonderful this year. Kate Began's wonderful Monaghan landscape in oils stands out in the gallery too, wonderful to see in life. I am looking forward to a 2nd visit. I didnt get photos of the wonderful detail so if anyone wants to add in photos here…

Thanks Norah, I will send on my email by PM for the group mailshot, just getting to grips with the site after joining this week, very kind of you to help.

I was only out a couple of times with the group, at Sandycove and Cabinteely a couple of years ago, but hope to do more.

Hi Norah. speaking of Second Sleep, I heard an interesting interview between Tubridy and Robert Harris the author who has just written a novel called just that. it has an interesting twist, its out on kindle and I just got it this minute. Its dystopian and I'm saying no more.

Hi Norah

you never disturbed me at all it was a pleasure to chat. I had the best time there, I have not enjoyed painting as much in a long long long time, I will definitely do more as soon as there is a paint out, I'll make sure I'm on it.
