This is one of two tea cup paintings in the Lahinch show and the last large one.


Do you remember when we were kids there used to be free bonus toys in cereal packets?

Remember the excitement of completing the set you been waiting for all summer and the fights when you realised your sister had got there first.

I love bonus gifts and that’s why I’ve been offering regular competitions with the chance to win a free print.

You might think that I might take for granted the support and encouragement that I receive. But can I tell you? I really don’t. I get the privilege that you allow me in popping into your inbox from time to time.

So thank you, for the little things and the big things.

And.. here’s that little bonus competition.  To win a new, free special edition print.



May – December Romance

Special Edition Print

10×10″ mounted to 12×12″ on acid-free board

Entry to the competition is for newsletter recipients only so the good news is that you don’t need to do a thing, your name is already in the hat! I’ll be picking the winner in a fortnight and I’ll email the winner directly.

Best of luck :-)



I’m on the road again

Off to Lahinch to the show opening at Kenny’s Lahinch Art Gallery.

The show ‘Cois fharraige’ or ‘By the Sea’ is a joint show featuring three Irish artists myself included and will open on Saturday, July 3oth at 7pm with a drinks reception.

This show is a rare opportunity to view some of this last of my tea cup and floral paintings.

If you’re about west Clare come join us for a glass of wine.

From Kenny’s Art Gallery..

Three Irish artists get together on this Month’s exhibition Cois Fharraige.

Each has something unique to contribute to this theme By The Sea

Henry Morgan is best known for capturing the rugged land that meets the Sea on the Clare Coast.
Roisin O Farrell joins us after a Summer of Solo exhibiting in Killarney Art Gallery. She is best known for the playful and light scenes of Wellies and Teacups. Among these will be unique seascapes that bring the warmth of a place called Home into a different subject. Roisin is based in Dublin but takes several trips a year to the West Coast for inspiration.
Peg Quinlan is a Cork-based artist who also spends time on the Clare Coast every year. She enjoyed learning from the impressionist style and is best known for her landscapes and floral designs.

And don’t forget that my Larger Solo Show at The Killarney Art Gallery continues throughout the summer.


And finally.. The opportunity

I’ve just had a cancellation for my three-day painting workshop August 12th,13th and 14th in Airfield Estate, Dundrum Co. Dublin so if you are free and fancy joining me for some painting and a bunch of fun, check out all the details here.



Till next time
