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…

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.

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.
