Hi, I am currently working on a portrait commission for a friend and hope to be finished this week.
Inge van Doorslaer ( friend and fellow artist) and I have just completed the third video in the Crawford Art Gallery’s online Lonradh at Home series, see crawfordartgallery.ie/lonradh-at-home.If you have not yet had a look at the Crawford’s online resources, do give it a go, as there are lots of art activities for all ages available. Besides Lonradh at Home, there are also eleven short videos called Creative Cocooning which were made over the spring and summer, which can also be checked out at crawfordartgallery.ie/creative cocooning.
I was a bit self conscious last week as I was asked if I would like to do a staff profile for the Crawford Art Gallery website, but of course I responded in the affirmative and my sweet(!) mug is there for all and sundry to see……. I mention the infamous artist from Cork, James Barry and his even more famous/infamous niece Margaret Anne Bulkley aka Dr.James Barry in the question and answer section – very intriguing story altogether…………

Until next time, have a good week.
