A landmark!

And the landmark is: Over 15,000 individuals have seen my blog, seen examples of my art. Thank you for visiting, for browsing, and most especially, for sharing.

As always, comments are welcome.

I spent a couple of hours today clearing out clutter from the cupboard at the bottom of my kitchen dresser - how many after-dinner coffee sets does any household need? - and so now have a little more room for my favourite kind of clutter: art materials. And I have a lot more bits than I realised. My late father-in-law loved to paint and he gave me lots of his materials and some of his paintings before he died, so I don't actually need to go buy much. Bedankt, Pa Patijn, hartelijk bedankt.

And now, an image:


A watercolour drawing from Estrella Park in Lisbon, simply entitled Two Girls in Black T-shirts

I still have lots more of these things to paint up.

Three paintings in a group exhibition in Dublin in the run-up to Christmas


I'm very pleased to say that I have three paintings in the above venue in Dublin for this exhibition.

The location: The Centre for Creative Practices, 15 Pembroke Street Lower, Dublin 2 - in the basement of the building.

The launch: Thursday 5th December from 6 pm. The exhibition ends on 20th December.

The three paintings are:

Cliffs of Moher: Rummaging



Archaic Rhythm


and 

All Time, Everywhere, Anyone

I won't be able to attend the opening myself, but am hoping the friends and family will be able to go along. I saw some works by other artists, and I think it's going to be a fabulous show. I hope to get up to it during the couple of weeks it's up.
