Painting the town red
So, did you get in to town for Culture Night? If you couldn’t make it in, you have got to make a date for next year. No really, I mean it. It’s great craic and free and needless to say we had a great night.
We all trouped in on the dart, kids an’all and heading straight up to the Bad Art Gallery which was already heaving. Here are some of my paintings hanging in the gallery. You can kinda see how busy it was. There was life sketching going on to the right with Dr. Sketchy, which was a hoot.[singlepic id=594 w=400 h=400 float=] [singlepic id=593 w=400 h=400 float=]
Lots of friends and family were there to enjoy the night and to wish me well. This is me with Roddie and Dee , Roddie is my uncle.[singlepic id=595 w=400 h=400 float=]
My friend Kevin was cutting a fine figure posing painting in the window and his picture made the cover of the Irish Times the next day.[singlepic id=600 w=400 h=400 float=] [singlepic id=598 w=400 h=400 float=]
After spending some time in Francis Street the kids headed off with their Nana and we (Rob and I) headed out into the town, footloose and fancy free! There were hundreds of events and galleries open until late and sure the night was young![singlepic id=597 w=400 h=400 float=]
Of course, some stops along the way had to be made![singlepic id=596 w=400 h=400 float=]
The IFI were showing the Commitments in Meeting House Square. Classic![singlepic id=599 w=400 h=400 float=]
Culture night 2010 finally came to a close in the very wee hours in JJ’s a jazz and blues club![singlepic id=601 w=400 h=400 float=]
the cliffs of moher
This painting is one of the new selection that will be available in The Killarney Art Gallery shortly. Actually it’s one of my personal favourites, although not a great photo.
