I was only out a couple of times with the group, at Sandycove and Cabinteely a couple of years ago, but hope to do more.

Hi Norah. speaking of Second Sleep, I heard an interesting interview between Tubridy and Robert Harris the author who has just written a novel called just that. it has an interesting twist, its out on kindle and I just got it this minute. Its dystopian and I'm saying no more.

Hi Norah

you never disturbed me at all it was a pleasure to chat. I had the best time there, I have not enjoyed painting as much in a long long long time, I will definitely do more as soon as there is a paint out, I'll make sure I'm on it.

Hi Nora, my name might be familiar to you because my brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law live in Leixslip. Patsy & Elma(yoga teacher) have moved now but we used to visit them in Leixslip.

Hi Nora I see you might attend Woodville House paint out tomorrow.  It is nowhere near Wells House. As you arrive in New Ross from the Kilkenny side i.e. over the bridge, go straight ahead into the main street, turn left at the 98 monument and keep on that road. There will be a junction to your right about a mile??  down that road and a pub called the Ferry Inn. The entrance to Woodville is just beyond that on your right. Hope to see you.

If you coming from Wexford side turn right at the roundabout and follow the road straight til it joins the above road at the Ferry Inn.

Hi Norah

Glad you found our little chat helpful.

It was such a lovely day at the Art In the Open in Graig. it was nice to have time to chat with you and other artist, especially as i was not painting.  My shoulder is improving every day, thank you for asking.  Take care of yourself and have fun painting.

Hi Norah
What a thrill you are my first Plein Air friend... Thank you. I couldnt find anyone so I went to Powerscourt on a quest to find people with easels...but no .. its my own fault. I miscalculated my journey time from Naas.
If there is an event North Wex or any area within an hour from Naas I would be so grateful if you let me know.
Am doing a portrait at the moment and having such a prob getting the brush to the canvas. Scared...
Did you ever have that prob
