A Lesson learnt.

Today I was working in my studio, when I looked outside and guess what,  the sun was shining and screaming come out and paint, I did just this. I went home gathered my equipment and off I went, bare in mind that I had not used this gear in almost a year. A quick look inside my easel and all seemed to be ok. I…

Neil Carrigan an appreciation.

The North West Painters Lost one of its founding members earlier this week. Niel Carrigan  His day to day job was as a school teacher but at the weekends he was an avid out door painter, who enjoyed the challenge's of painting the light, around and on the landscape, no matter what the weather and believe you me, we painted in some weather conditions, from wind swept to bright sunny days. On our last trip out the weather was good we went down to the Isle of Doagh in Donegal, where we were…

Hi Patrick. I didn't know how to reply to your comment and didn't realise I could do it this way rather than finding myself having to invite you to be a friend.  I am hoping to start up a  group in Tyrone at some point. Thank you for your offer of painting with your group.

Hi Patrick, I'm just a beginner. I won't be joining the Exhibition. Good luck though, 'hope it goes well.

Thanks Patrick. I am more an indoor gloomy studio and foundry sort of guy, who is allergic to fresh air, but perhaps its time to venture out into the great outdoors!  Hope you are open to sculptors with a bent for the abstract?
