Mr. Frawley takes a nap
Mr. Frawley is a well known character in Lahinch where we holiday most years. Often seen taking the air outside his pub. So I was very sad to see the pub boarded up this year and to hear Mr. Frawley is now in a retirement home. The town won’t be the same.[singlepic id=1313 w=450 h=400 float=]
I painted him last year as a commission and received another commission for a similar painting recently. It will be November before I can get to it but I look forward to coming back to Mr. Frawley.

back from the whest
We are back home from the west and I am currently posting in between laundry loads before we head off again camping to the seaside again. This short trip will involve two nights …yes two whole nights under canvas. I think I’m turning into a Mountie (do Mounties camp? maybe not) anyway, if the rain holds off (who am I kidding) it will be great. There’s no t’internet there, no signal even, so it will be radio silence for a couple of days (I may develop a twitch).[singlepic id=1308 w=350 h=400 float=]
If you didn’t catch this months Social and Personal Magazine you can see the clip by clicking on the cover in the side bar. I am unreasonably excited by the fact someone chose my paintings and I’m afraid I may mention this several more times! Annoying I know but it’s the first time so try to be patient with me.
