Off to paint in Sardinia!

I've been weighing every art pad and canvas I've got to try and fit what I need into Ryanair's miniscule baggage.  And as you are aware, fellow artists - I normally take evervthing except the kitchen sink.  And my pink and white polka - dotted shopper will have to remain at home.

I'm going with thirteen others from the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club.  It is a return visit, as the Sardinians visited here earlier in the year and experienced our delightful showery days.  They…

I'm glad you are on the mend Val it sounds like you are having a holiday of sorts. Would the staff be annoyed at us turning your room into a studio , who knows maybe it would add a little colour to the place?

Hi Valerie,

Are you going up to the Pumpkins? I plan to go but don't know where it is. You might tell me.

Regards

David

Thank you.

Thanks, Valerie. Delighted you are coming to AITO again. Abbey B&B is a good one and very close by.  I have been told of another offering no breakfast but clean, generous rooms for €250 for two sharing for 7 nights (ie.  €125 each!). The rooms have 3 beds in them, so they are quite spacious and the place is one block uphill from the Abbey B&B. If you have friends considering making the trip who don't mind sharing and perhaps they can't get into the Abbey, tell them to contact me straight away.
