it’s off to town we go, high ho!

I didn’t paint today or yesterday! I know, imagine!

But I’ve been busy with other things. I’ve been working on the website (did you see the new galleries section in the top menu bar?) and sorting out exciting things like looking for advice on bookkeeping. You know when you’re driving a car there’s a blind spot?  My “business blind spot” is bookkeeping. I’m fairly competent in the admin sphere, but when it comes to figures and the bookkeeping end of things I have huge laspes in reason, concentration and the will to live!

Do you have any good advice for me? I could do with it.

Anyway, it’s off to town we go tonight for culture night. The family von trappe O’Farrell/Lawson/Aherne/Alén. Loosly translated as me, Rob, my kids, my Mum and Sagrario (my Spanish student/daughter). We will take the dart (train) into town, heading up to Francis Street first of all for the fun in the Bad Art Gallery.  Mum will bring the kids home with her and we will follow later under our own steam (and other influences).

kate’s apple’s

My neighbour’s have apple tree’s and were kind enough to present me with a bag of these gorgeous red apple’s the other day. I really enjoyed painting them. (In fact I may be reduced to scaling the wall for some more) This painting is one of the largest I’ve done as yet and is 24×24 inches. It’s off to the Killarney Art Gallery and will be available in a week or two.
