Well yesterday some SEPA members met in White's Hotel, our mission turned out to be quite challenging, we were randomly designated a Wexford business premises to paint.All said establishments are taking part in "Wexford in Bloom" a competition for the best Garden (beer) or otherwise or best window boxes etc.
I was very lucky as i got Granville House B&B in Clonard to paint, the front garden was absolutely fantastic and the back was out of this world with doves and old stone little outbuildings, a pond and fountain and masses of beautiful shrubs and flowers.
I asked the owner where he would prefer me to paint and he said maybe the front, (i think he really wanted the sign to be included) so thats what I did. The owners Emmet and Grainne Cullen were so nice to me and said I could use their loo if needed, and Grainne brought me out a big pot of coffee and biccys, ahh LUXURY Plein-air, Im tellin ya that's the way to do it!!!.
My second assignment was Shoe Style International's shop front, but to be honest I couldn't see why they bothered entering "Wexford in Bloom" as there wasn't as much as a blade of grass outside their premises, however I made a stab at it and got a small w/colour almost finished.
It was a great day out and I thoroughly enjoyed Granville House's great hospitality.
I also think it would be a great place to stay for anyone travelling to the festival.
Thanks a mill Tony and Karen for your "inventiveness"HA HA
