I can't believe it is almost a month since I've posted!
I have been busy painting. Mostly paintings of my pond, but a little bit figurative work too.
The work has been going well, obviously, that is why I have been so lax in my blogging.....I've been too busy painting to blog.

I will try to upload a few images later in the week.

another update on the plien air painting

It's still raining! I don't see myself getting much plien air painting done while the weather is like this. I am hoping the weather will get more summer like this month. It is a little frustrating not being able to paint outdoors all summer....it's enough to make you want to emigrate to somewhere dry...

Just a small update..

I am still working on more pond paintings, with the humid thundery weather of the last few days the oil paint has been slow to dry. It still surprises me at how dependent on the weather conditions drying time can be even while using drying mediums. I still need to do more work in the studio too, I have not finished my re-organising yet.
I will be doing some plein air landscapes shortly, at least if the weather is amenable I will. I am hoping to get a few days here and there around the country so I have some varied Irish landscapes to hopefully organise a show in the US in a while. I haven't had a US show in a couple of years, but at the same time I have not really had that many Irish landscapes "in stock" in a few years to organise a show featuring landscapes of Ireland.
I have been meaning to get enough together for quite a while...the world is paved with good intentions....and I just haven't been in the mindset to do it.

I have set up a page on Facebook this week, mainly to keep in contact with family members abroad, but feel free to look me up...:)
