happy chair on a wet day
I’m back at the easel after a long weekend off to recover from all the excitment. This is the second of these ‘under the stair’ paintings which I think looks much better in the flesh (the camera seems to make the whole thing duller)

What can I say. The show opened on Thursday night last. It was, as you know by know, a very special night for me and was all I had hoped for and more.
TV3’s Colette Fitzpatrick did a wonderful job, her address was warm and bright and well informed. The place was hopping and a lots of collectors and critics came along as well as lots of my own lovely friends and family.[singlepic id=1336 w=370 h=290 float=] Denise Donnelly (the Doorway), Colette Fitzpatrick (TV3), Me & Deirdre Caroll (The Doorway)
Another painting sold on the night to make six so far and I think one or two more are on reserve. The show will remain open until October 6th.[singlepic id=1337 w=470 h=390 float=]
