Are there groups in the midlands?

Hello there, my name is Ray Forkan, erst while member of Plein Eire West (forgive me, forgive me). I'm now located somewhere in the middle of the country. Are there groups around here? I haven't found one yet? I'd be very interested in meeting up with people. I'll be going out as much as possible this year, usually not on Sundays but I'm open to conversion.... Get in touch here if you are in the region... I look forward to meeting you soon,RaySee More

Profile Information

Hi, My Name is Ray, I'm originally from Mayo to where I've recently returned after a couple or four years traveling for work.

I'm a digital painter/designer/art director for the international animation industry by profession but am hoping that joining this group will give me the impetus to get up from behind the computer and out into the fields. (and maybe loose this belly in the process!)

Always wanted to be a plein air painter, have been following a multitude of artists online forever so now's my chance! Looking forward to meeting and learning from you all! Happy Painting-Ray.
