Neck Gaiters

This is what happens when you leave your camera in the car overnight - and try to take photos inside before it warms up.

Neck gaiter as a scarf:

As an ear warmer

As a face warmer

As a hat

Final painting of the year

Photo taken near Mount Leinster at the end of October.

Painting made in December - from a monochrome image of the pgoto, so I was a bit creative with the colours.

Picture has now gone to New York - hope the new owners are happy with it...

Gifts from Geraldine.

Nicola's Christmas swap has come through for me -





above is the overwhelming bounty from my swap partner Geraldine. Beautiful and innovative wreath – too nice to put outside, lavender pouch made from an embroidered handkerchief, a book of dutch recipes, and letter chocolates for the boys – they were delighted with them. Another brilliant swap – thanks Nicola!

Show report

So, the show opened on Wednesday last - about 18 artists work altogether, so a big crowd of friends and families. My family came - my mother briefly, Dara nad Leo, and Brian in between ferrying people around and attend Choir meetings. My brother Joe also showed up, and a few of the mothers form the school. We headed off for drinks afterward to celebrate.

So no sales as of yet, but the show is open till the 20th, and this weekend sees the invasion of Mullingar by Joe Dolan fans, for the unveiling of his statue. So maybe....

Update: I counted, and there are actually 30 artists, and a total of 54 paintings.
