Join me this week in a paint out in Westmeath, only an hour for most of us to drive to.  We meet in the town of Athboy in the Darnley Lodge Hotel for coffee and a catch up, then for those that love the bog cotton and all the other delights on offer, we can drive out to the bog around Athboy - Delvin in Westmeath. There are also village scenes in Athboy or plenty of old barns along the roads.  We meet at 11am in the Darnley Lodge Hotel, AthboySee More

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.

Pleasure Norah, glad you enjoyed it.

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.
