#workinginthewindow was a great experience, thank you Sheila Considine for the opportunity. It was a great experience to talk to people while I was working.
This last month brought 2 new collectors. I can replenish my dwindling supply of paint. It’s a great feeling, it feeds the art. There’s a thrill in the piece on my easel now, an inclination to push the colour and form.
Andrew Graham Dixon had a wonderful documentary on BBC4 the other evening, about Still Life – Apples, Pears and Paint: How to Paint a Still Life Painting: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03ny8wk. What with that, and the terrible storms now battering Ireland, this painting I did back in the winter of 2010 came to mind.
