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!

When someone mentioned a lunchtime art session at the office… I thought it may be me and a couple of other workmates!  I never imagined ten people would give up their lunch hour to come and try their hand at watercolour floral rings!!  I was very impressed with their concentration and their finished artwork – amazingly good!  It was lovely to see how everyone concentrated on their work … listening to Fleetwood Mac must have helped – 🙂 !!  It was a joy!

Some nice comments followed on my Facebook page … (blowing my own tiny trumpet here!!) ….

  • Really enjoyed my art session Mo. Brilliant teacher 🌷
  • You’re a natural teacher! Thank you 😀
  • We should do it more often!

Update – Søstrene Grene art demo day!

Wow …what a day! To say that the Søstrene Grene art event was a success would be an understatement. We had so many folk trying the art supplies…and I could not have survived without my twin sister Denise of Denise’s Boxes / Denise McDowell Art!! She was superb with the younger ones who wanted to try to paint sunflowers and floral rings…amazingly patient and encouraging…thank you sis!! Thanks again to the staff and Manager – Nuala – from the Belfast Ann Street store – it was a joy!! 🙂 … so happy it went well and some folk even bought the art bundle to continue their creativity at home 🙂 !!

30 Paintings in 30 days :)

I decided to start September with a challenge to myself – to complete 30 paintings in 30 days !  I had been given lovely watercolours from a colleague who didn’t use them.  This prompted me to start some floral wreaths in various tones.  Happy to say I’m keeping on course … here they are ….. so far!!
