Livin’ on the clippings of tin

Immersed in conversation with a friend, I was struck by this phrase which she used to describe an old uncle who was not longer ‘on his uppers’.  And of course I saved it.  I have a little notebook which I keep phrases and quotes and little snippets that I may or may not ever use. I am, of course,  aware that this makes me sound at best pretentious and at worst more than a little odd but there you are! I do at least try to note things down later and not in front of the person while they are speaking. That would be crossing a line, don’t ya think?

Off to Killarney

I’m off to Killarney at the weekend for the opening of a joint show with the beautiful Amélie Gagné. We each have 15 paintings on show.

Amélie is a Canadian artist living in Killarney. She paints dreamy landscapes in vibrant colour. I can’t wait to see our work hung together and I’m really looking forward to meeting up with everyone down in Killarney for the craic.

You can check out the exhibition and all the paintings from both Amélie and I on the Killarney Art Gallery’s website.

Contact Declan Mulvaney at 00 353 87 2767999 for more info on any of the paintings and remember they ship worldwide.

Shipping is something we’ve mastered over here, by first practicing on other things!

  • Hi Róisín,

    Everyone who writes keeps great sayings. You
    aren’t doing anything wrong, and that’s a great one. I actually have a notebook in my purse most of the time, for drawings, and sayings. Love this painting. Super. Congratulations on all of your recent successes.

    XO Barbara

  • The clippings of tin was what travelling tinker’s left after they’d fixed all the pot and pans in the town. A phrase my mother used in mayo for economic living.
