I’ve taken a wee break from painting and from blogging on Monday, to do, well not very much! And I’m all the better for it. When I returned to the easel I fancied tackling something light and bright and pretty. And why the hell not eh? And this was the result!
I’m currently working of paintings for a show down in Killarney that will happen sometime early summer. Date TBC.

Detail of self portrait – Lucien Freud
Over the break I treated myself to an art book of Lucien Freud portraits. I’ve been poring over his bold and luscious brush work and drinking in the luminous quality of his work.
However, not everyone’s a fan. My eldest told me yesterday “that book should not just be left lying around where anyone could pick it up. There are paintings in it that are not suitable for children ….. and also for men!”
When I asked why she said “too much detail….if you know what I mean”.
