The next time you are out painting around the Sutton area, I would very much like to see if we could arrange to meetup and have a chat about Plein Eire Painting in the Dublin Group.
This would be a whole new area of painting for me, as up to know I have only been painting in my small studio at home.
Just to inform you that I also like seascapes, as well as landscapes, and I would very much like to develop this area of painting with like minded people.
Hoping to meetup with you soon,
P.S. Just to let you know that I have every afternoon off work, as my job is mainly finished by lunchtime. If you would like my e-mail address, please just leave a message on the comment wall and I will get back to you with it the next time I go online.
Yes, can be there for 10am. But best to text when you arrive as I live only 2 mins away. The car park is just opposite the church so 30 mins will be more than enough time to see the windows. Then I can show the way to Ardgillan about 10 mins by car from there. See you Saturday morning. Alsion
Seasons Greetings John. I am involved in voluntary work at the hospital under the Arts & Health programme. There was an Open Day advertised resulting in registration, selection and vetting processes. Perhaps keep an eye on the hospital website for further information. Hope this helps.
PS. I reckon the sans serif bold condensed you were speaking of is Gerry Hegarty's page style selection? Could I suggest you roll this week's postponed Dub Plein Eire paint-out to join with the Boyne Valley group at Balbriggan next weekend instead if its not too far?
Thanks for the comments on the site which I'll look into. You should be able to edit the details of the Dublin Group as you are the initiator. However, I have made the changes you asked about and if you want to change the wording or whatever don't hesitate to get in touch.
The Discussion Forum on Dub PE is set to just cycle the latest 5 postings (headings only) and if there are out of date ones in view, its just because it is an unused facility. It can be discontinued if you prefer, or set to show only Group Admin discussions. The amount of text shown and the number of postings made visible can be varied. I guess it is generally for more pressing matters than the general 'Comment Wall'.
Anyway, I deleted the out-of-date exhibition notice and have left the facility there for now if you and members want to use it. Unfortunately, as site Admin. I don't see quite what you see on-screen, but I think you should have editorial control over the Dub PE area if you look for the 'edit' function. But as I say, if not, just ask and its easily fixed.
Looks like the rain is down for the day. Never thought of the weather issue! i will certainly go down to Blackrock and liaise with Padraic from Ouzos and let folk know that we should prob postphone. Lets have a coffee and rain check in Ouzos with any potential Artists. Many thanks for you thoughts. Gerard Hegarty
Looking forward to seeing you and the group on Saturday. Pauric the owner of the Ouzos Loves artists and art and is looking forward to seeing the group and the finished paintings of Blackrock. The heatwave is on the way and fingers crossed we will benefit on the weekend. Im looking forward to meeting you and members of the group,
Thanks for all that info re using the site. I am on a sharp learning curve to-day. I don't think you need worry about the 'first' ;'second' Saturday thing. I'm sure we will meet literally on the second Sat even if we have to wait five weeks until the next. Also, most of us haven't been tested for winter weather and we may not rise to the challenge.
Very kind of you to suggest it. Yes, I'd love a lift if you are anywhere near here. I am staying with my daughter on Clarinda Park West in Dun Laoghaire. If not, I'm sure I'll find someone from here who is planning on going.
