Hi Sally, I hope to join you on a paint-out soon.I've been getting Nora's e-mails but didn't realise there were other events organised also. I must keep a closer eye on the site! Looking forward to catching up with the group ...every best wish, Mary

Hi Sally, was looking at some of the work of one of my favourite British watercolourists this evening, Edward Seago - fantastic, and came across this. Remind you of anything? I have one quite similar by a very well-known artist from Co.Meath.  Hope all well with you, missed not seeing you at AITO.

At 12:19 on July 3, 2019, Kevin Lewis said…

Cheers Sally, thank you.  Not sure if I'll be in the area or not as yet, depends where you all might be, but I might be. Won't be in Donegal however, as boys on hols now and duty calls. Will see you at AITO soon I hope.

Hi Sally hope you had a great time in Connemara, always love to keep in touch with BVPA. and view all your results.  Where are you guys off to this coming weekend? Getting near AITO week now so hopefully will see you soon.

At 8:25 on May 7, 2019, Mary McAteer said…

Many thanks for getting back to me Sally..I'm delighted to have made contact and am looking forward to painting with the group soon.

You're right of course Sally they are paintings I suppose. Hope you enjoy the ploughing and avoid getting wet. Looking forward to seeing your results.
