Lockdown! No stopping us! Keep painting with my on-line classes via Zoom!

I’m having great fun keeping us connected and painting! It’s not the same as classes where we’re all in the same room, but it does have the advantage that you can be anywhere in the world and still join in a session!

Result! Zoom has a great function, where I can highlight any participant and have a close look at their work!

Some pictures from last week:

Top marks to Mary for recreating the painting on a cake using buttercream!!! Star!
Gallery View on zoom, everyone with their finished paintings! A mixture of oils, acrylics and coloured pencils!
And there’s me in the studio, two cameras, two screens, step-by-step!

Lunch time live radio interview!

Radio chat about the Kerry Way Ultra and Cosmetic Surgery!

Sometimes when I’m sitting in the studio painting away and listening to the radio I hear something that makes me really mad. This was a chat about cosmetic surgery, everyone is at it apparently, which surprised me tbh. They were all very serious about it so I texted in with my tuppence worth, and before I knew it I was on the phone waiting for the ad break to end and Ciara Kelly to introduce me! Very exciting! So I told Ciara how you could look better for free if you took exercise, and this led nicely on to the recent 200km foot race I had just completed. Great opportunity to blow my own trumpet, and of course get a dig in about beating the hubby ;D

Art Source 2019- ‘A Smile On Canvas!’

Art Source -The Stand- 2019

The Wild Joy of Autumn Light!

Thrilled to bits with the stand this year! Delighted to display my four latest large-size autumn scenes from Killarney National Park, and a great range of runners, florals and horses. 13 sales and 4 commissions.

Amazing to see the big paintings up, and the impact they had on the visitors!  The Black Bridge stayed up in Dublin, going to a new home, and lots of measuring and interest on the other three!

Lovely to meet up with all my artist friends, and to chat to so many people. I’m very grateful to have the opportunity.
