yesterday was a red dot day!

Green Apple Punctuation is off to a new owner somewhere and I hope it’s very happy with them!

Killarney Art Gallery have sellected another 8 paintings to replace those that have sold. I’m working on new paintings for the Whalley Gallery up north and Kenny‘s in Lahinch. Once those are in the bag it will be straight on to working on new work for the Bad Art Gallery’s Christmas Show and Killarney Art Gallery’s Christmas Show.

Honestly, I don’t recognise my life from a year ago. I couldn’t even have hoped for it. And it’s great to be busy!

Now if you’re not from Northern Ireland you’ll be wondering what on earth that title is all about. I can’t find it anywhere on the internet (that’s a first!) but my mother-law from the north uses this expression. She uses it in the same way as we might say “since the year dot” or “since before time”.  I love these local expressions. Another good northern one is  “go get on ya” which means go get dressed or get your clothes on. Rob’s granny had a great one she used about her wee dog. “He runs round like a masty” no one to this day has been able to tell me what a masty is!
