This relates to your comment on my blog post. I recall that I did read this post when you
put it up and found it informative. Unfortunately my knowledge of Irish painters is limited so
I had'nt much info to offer. Perhaps an amalgamation of your quest for info and my blog could
be combined as a feature on the site. The idea would be to encourage members to share their
knowledge and or information and build up a body of knowledge. I always find it interesting
to see what artistic influences other people have. What do you think?
I really enjoyed the Hone catalogue.
I think your thread is self-explanatory although sometimes it is like pulling teeth to get members to be responsive. On Plein Eire, as many such websites, I think 95% of the posting is done by 5% of the members. That is why I quickly added the Danby piece to try to generate some momentum behind yours. We'll see what happens. Nevertheless, Google Analytics shows that there are thousands who visit the site, from all over the world each month, so we keep trying and one shouldn't judge the influence and value of a posting simply by the number of replies it gets.
If there were another couple of active, noisy groups like PEBV, I'd be delighted. Please keep it up.
