Covid 19 Howth virtual paint-out

This is one I found in my pile of un-finished paintings from Dublin Plein Air festival, I have tried to touch up some of it but I took no photos so I will wait till I can return out there some day to catch some of the deep colours I remember on the rocks in front of me. I remember the tide was coming in fast and I had to move Looking forward to trying a few from photos later today, take care all…

Visit to Sorolla exhibition National Gallery

A wonderful exhibition, worth a few return visits. I didnt get a group photograph but I think Kyrle did - you can add it on here if you like Kyrle. A few of us tried sketching in Merrion Sq afterwards and Kevin went to great extremes to find a few roofs to paint in the city centre…

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.

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.
