Art in the Open
Last few days I've been packing and travelling and I arrived here last night in time for the welcome meeting in Wexford. What a friendly bunch of people! There are artists here from all over the world and the organisers are super.
We were painting in Inistioge today (pronounced Inish-teeg) and were extremely lucky with the weather as you can see- had sun most of the morning! By three o clock though the sky had clouded thickly and by 5.30 the rain started!
I attended a workshop with Michael McGuire about painting moving water and we all set up to paint next to this bridge.
This afternoon I found this family having a picnic by the riverside. I could have done with a bit more time but I think I got the impression. It didn't take the children long to spot what I was up to and they didn't sit down again, they were more interested in watching me painting than being in the painting!
I've looked at the weather forecast for the rest of the week... and I really wish I hadn't!
