      ***********************************************************************

    … I’m actually not too sure how my adventures in impasto started.  A friend of mine (Lynda!) bought me some nice new paint and it was calling out to be layered up and these are the results!

The People’s Painters – Update

Yesterday was a big filming day for the upcoming amateur painting series at the F E McWilliam Gallery (photo by Alleycats TV) …I’m fortunate enough to be one of the artists involved and the other four have now become firm friends – their work is superb!!  Not too sure when the three half hour programmes will be aired but will keep you informed!

Update – LeakyCon Dublin 2017

Well …to say that my session ‘Doodling Harry Potter’ this month at LeakyCon Dubin..was a success…would be an understatement!  I am always a little nervous when I teach and think that no-one will turn up!  This time I was hoping for 10-15 folk …. what a surprise when we arrived at the room and we counted how many came …140!! Wow… I’m still smiling!

I was so impressed with all of the participants – aged 4 – 54!!  They were all really responsive and talented too!  It made me realize that I love to teach …and to see people drawing/painting again.  See the photos below for their happy, smiling faces 🙂 !!

My thanks go to my sister Denise (check out her lovely assembled boxes at Denise’s Boxes) and my brother in law Norm who ran around to try to find more paper and pens!!  I also want to mention the lovely lady from Australia – Doodles by Sarah – who very kindly gave me permission to use her Harry Potter art to run the session … (it would have be difficult to paint my acrylic landscapes in the session!!) Thank you!
