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!
******** AN INVITATION TO YOU **********
I am thrilled to say that on Easter Saturday 31st March 2018 I will be in Søstrene Grene (Ann Street, Belfast) showing the customers how easy it is to do some watercolour floral paintings!! Demonstration begins at 1pm! I am so excited about working in partnership with this lovely store and want to thank the Manager – Nuala for her encouragement. The shop specialises in wonderful interior design, stationery, gift wrapping, crafts, kitchen goods and toys for children. I’ll be showing folk how to use the Søstrene Grene art products which are extremely good value! More information to follow !!
… You are invited to my online Watercolour Spring Sale this
Sunday 18th March 2018 9pm GMT …
Why buy a print when you can treat yourself (or someone else!) a one of a kind original watercolour?
… remember there’s more people on the attending list – than there is artwork available. First come … first served!
Watercolour Spring Sale
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!
If you would like to treat yourself (or someone else) to an original pencil artwork of your dog …head on over to my Etsy store !! (short waiting list at the moment) xx 🙂
…are now hanging up in their new home in Texas, USA … thanks to Carla for this lovely photo. I really like to see how you have them all framed up and arranged on your wall – thank you so much for letting me see them!! 🙂 Enjoy!!
Please head over to my Facebook page and like if you wish 🙂 …ta! xx
