Works being made for an exhibition in Limerick city

The exhibition will be in CB1 Limerick, right in the city centre, and I'm currently finishing the works ... all in acrylic as it happens, which is a good thing as it dries fast and I'm hanging TOMORROW. That's Monday 13 November.

I would have hung them yesterday (Saturday) but I woke up one morning during the week with my face and neck all swelled up - not painful, but I looked like a pufferfish. Or a chipmunk. My doctor examined me and diagnosed paratitis, a swelling of the salivary glands, not very common but can happen when a body is a bit run down. As I'd had a month or so of short nights, this was no surprise, although why I couldn't have got a cold like a normal person .... Anyhow, I was told I could be contagious to other vulnerable people for a few days and that I was to take it easy and go on a course of antibiotics. Happily my face and neck are no longer like a big round full moon, but I'm going to be a bit puffy-looking for a few more days. What I got is related to the mumps, but I had the mumps as a child, so ...

Luckily I was just finishing my involvement with a major project in my day job, and even then they could delegate a few other things to other people - I love working with considerate project managers.

But back to the works: these are 20 cm squared and very affordable. There'll be some larger ones. Most will be unframed. All are square. I didn't want them to be either landscape or portrait format, they are neither one nor the other. 

Exhibition will open on Tuesday 14 November, 11 am to 4pm daily, and until 7pm on Friday 17 and 24 November, and runs until 25 November. 

Looking forward to meeting you!
