time to exhale
The kids are settled into school, my Italian boys have gone home and Sagrario (my Spanish student/adopted daughter) is settling into the family for the long haul.
I painted last night so this morning I took some time off for a cuppa and a bit of a catch up with my good friend Claire.
I seem to have loads of ideas at the moment and in fact I think that I am really only getting back into my stride after the busy summer and hectic back to school time. I’m inpatient to translate the ideas into paintings but I’ve been getting out different materials to play around with and also doing some life drawing.
today’s experiment was with pastels

My Dad’s family are Dalkey born and bred and my Mum lived there too for some years. This painting is of Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey Island behind it, definitely their stomping ground. It’s a slighter unusual view as it is seen from quite high up over the dart (train) line.
