the tinderbox picture show

from the left ryan,claire,damien and becca
moi just finishing off the comments page , you know swirls and bits ....
janes special guests (thanks guys)
on my way home to the train back to the west , I had one more look from the outside at our show
on the way home aboard the train ...yes folks there was a random blizzard , just to make things even more exciting !
I have to say that I am still on a high from mondays opening at filmbase in Dublin.
Just to meet all my fellow tinderboxers was so exciting and positive.(hello dears)
The feeling of my work being out there, feels fantastic and exhilirating.
I enjoyed the whole process of hanging the show with the others,having lunch and planting new ideas for our future .
Then at the opening to meet old friends who live in the capital ,that I had not seen for years ,was awesome .
Thank you to all those around and within me that helped to make this happen.
Art brings people together, it is empowering,hopeful and just plain essential to our sense of who we are or can be collectively.
