Your Site For Artists Who Paint Outdoors

Just to say a huge thank you to all who worked so hard, and so professionally, to make the Wexford Plein Air Painting Festival such a great success. I was blown away by the warm welcome from everyone, by the great organisation, by the attention to detail - all in such a short space of time and with so many participants - it was simply brilliant.
How you put together that huge exhibition so quickly with lovely hanging arrangements and typed painting details was just remarkable.  And the exhibition looked so good, so fresh with the energy, enthusiasm and creativity of 100 artists - it lifted my spirits and I floated home in my car to the West! And it was a most enjoyable and memorable weekend,  making lots of new friends, and I would encourage any painter to put Wexford August Bank Holiday into their diary for 2011.
Thanks again to all the Committee members for making such a great event. John Dinan

Could'nt agree more John, Was nice to meet you
As one of the Steering Committee members, I want to thank you for your kind comments, John. I sometimes wonder too how it all comes together apparently seamlessly - it's amazing how productive one can become after a few nights with little or no sleep! It was a pleasure to meet you if for little more than a quick hello. Hopefully, you'll make it back next year and perhaps we'll persuade you to join us for some of our regular paint-outs before then.
Hi John
Great to hear you had such fun. look forward to seeing again
[Karen mentioned an 'East meets West' paint out, hope to hear more about that!]
Yes, what a brilliant weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed everything! Congratulations again to the committee - don't know how you did it and it LOOKS so effortless! Nice to meet you too John - I loved your demo and waiting on workshop details for next year.
I agree 100 percent. A whole new world of Plein Air was opened up to me. It was thrilling to meet professionals and amateurs who were so friendly and helpful. Wouldn't have missed it for the world. A million thanks to Tony, Trish, the committee and all who worked behind an before the scenes. Will certainly spread the word in this part of the country.

Thanks too for all your help, John. I see you gave workshops in Baldoyle earlier in the year. I will keep an eye out and would love to participate.
Hey John...well said and it was a pleasure to meet you and attend your excellent demo! Thanks so much! Will look forward to catching up with you again...Jane
Hi everyone,
I just joined Pleine Eire a few days ago, co-incidentally after visiting Enniscorthy last Saturday July 31 after seeing a multitude of artists and easels scattered about the town. I was well impressed to see such colour and dedication from these artists on a very changeable and showery day. On investigation I discovered the artists were part of the Plein Air Festival. The event certainly brightened up my day and encouraged me to join. Congrats to all who took part.... Joe M.
Just wanted to add my appreciation to this thread - had such a fantastic time. Everyone was so approachable and the overall atmosphere was just amazing. Thank you to the organisers for making us feel so welcome and for the super exhibition which was a testament to the artists. Cannot believe none of it existed before this weekend, incredible!

Anyway, thank you - thank you - thank you!!

Hi John,
I'm delighted you had such a good time. The festival has a real "feel good " quality to it, for the organizers as well as the participants. The chance to meet like minded people, share ideas, and have fun, has me keeping August Bank holiday weekend, free into the future. Looking forward to next year already!!
As organizer of the Demonstration Event, I'd like to thank Judy koon, yourself, John Dinan, Grahame Booth and David Diaz, for the wonderful contributions you all made, which helped to demystify the process of painting ,and I'm sure has inspired many people to give plein air painting a try. Many Congratulations on your award ..Karen
Hi John,

Thank you all for a great few days
