"I don't think I can make it today, it's outside the 20k area for me. Would love to try next Sunday when inter county travel is allowed. Thank you for hosting what looks like a fabulous venue with lots of potential."

"Love this painting, I can get feeling of the weather conditions. Beautiful light as well. The only way to shake of the blues is to keep painting. We all get those moments, I think it's time to get outdoors"

Virtual Paint out in Howth
