I am almost ready and packed for our trip down south and am excited and nervous at the same time!
I was originally invited to exhibit from the 28th until the 2nd (see flyer!), but after a cancellation of another artist I was offered the entire 12 days, which needless to say I snapped up!
Looking forward to it and hoping for a successful exhibition.

This kitty was one of many cats at a Cat Protection kennels that a friend helps out at. I thought that it would be a good opportunity to get some good ref photos while I was visiting her. So many cute kitties I was sorely tempted to take one home with me!

This I painted from a pic that my daughter took on an early morning jog, I loved it so much I just had to paint it. It was one of those effortless paintings that just rolls off the brush. I didn't bother much with a sketch, just brief outlines with a brush and diluted paint and then I dived right in. The dry stone wall in front of the ponies are typical here in the west of Ireland, covered with lichen, moss and wild flowers and of course ivy.
