What are the dates for the 2011 Art in the Open festival?  I seem to remember that some things went on before, or after it.  What would be a good time to arrive?  Thank you!

Digital Virtual Paint-out HOWTH at Howth Harbour

April 27, 2020 at 11am to May 4, 2020 at 3pm
Because we can't meet face-to-face, this is a Digital Virtual Paint-out for the Howth area , no matter where in Ireland, people live, with imagery we can access online in our own homes.  Howth has a lot to offer with 2 lighthouses, a harbour with lots of colourful boats, a customs house, a martello tower and there's also a Howth castle. And we have a week to produce a result.   Participants can find their own inspirational  images online, and because the source is digital, people from around…See More

Wish I could be there

Hope everyone has fun this year at AITO.  I loved being there a couple years ago, and treasure my memories of the event and the people.

December Art Show

These three paintings are in a show that I just hung.  The dog, and the aerial painting are 4 ft x 3 ft,  and the other one is 5 ft x 4 ft.   The photos did not come out very well.  I hope to take some pictures at the opening.  I have another show in January also, so I am busy in the studio.  …

Hello Elaine,  I am glad that you enjoyed my painting of Baker park in Frederick MD.  It was a glorious Spring day and the colors were just jumping off the canvas. I enjoyed looking at your work too.  Love the pastel technique

A bird just flew in to tell us of your exhibition 'A Different Perspective'.

Congratulations, Elaine. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year from your Irish painting compadres and best of luck with the show.

Thank you! We all went out to Laytown, Co. Meath to paint plein eire style. Everyone else concentrated on the river banks etc., but I thought the structure of these would be a challenge.  They are the seed heads of the summer thistle (I don't know the proper name for them).  In summer they have purple tops on them.  You don't see too many of them in Ireland, they are more common in England, so when I saw them I jumped at chance to paint them!

Oh ....take some photo's . You could put your group on the site here too, and keep us posted on your adventures :)

Weather is starting to change here now, with the chill of winter in the air. It's a beautiful time of year though...
