Brent, a retired laboratory animal, was the top vote-getter in an online chimp art contest organized by the Humane Society of the United States, which announced the results Thursday. He won $10,000…

Off to paint in Sardinia!

I've been weighing every art pad and canvas I've got to try and fit what I need into Ryanair's miniscule baggage.  And as you are aware, fellow artists - I normally take evervthing except the kitchen sink.  And my pink and white polka - dotted shopper will have to remain at home.

I'm going with thirteen others from the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club.  It is a return visit, as the Sardinians visited here earlier in the year and experienced our delightful showery days.  They…

PEBV Skerries, Co. Dublin

A very good turn out yesterday in wet cold windy conditions.  Some artists painted from their cars, others got shelter behind walls and I sat on a bench at the beach.   Great to see everyone make the effort to go yesterday.  There was plenty to paint but sadly the weather made it difficult to even stay outdoors.  Worth a return visit in better conditions.  I think winter has arrived and apologies as I forgot to take a photo of the group for posterity.
