Moore Street - 2pm 30th Jan @ IIlac Shopping Centre Entrance!

Hi all - apologies for the delay in sending out the email today - little bit of confusion about location!

This Sunday we will meet at 2pm at the Moore Street entrance to the IIlac Shopping Centre, just off of Henry Street. There is lots to draw in the area - the City Library is upstairs in the Shopping Centre and is always interesting, Moore Street in itself is a haven of characters and of course the general hustle and bustle of the shopping centre.… Read on...

Plein Air/Plein Eire

My plein air painting of an Irish cottage at our local Frontier Culture Museum, here in Virginia, USA was the first painting/artist featured on the website, "Irish Fireside".  Plein Eire was mentioned in the short article with the painting.  I thought you all would be interested in seeing it.  The site is very nice, and they have a fun podcast series too.  Enjoy!
