my dear ones
it was in a story (sold !!)
pencil and oil pastel on paper
guess who !!
the last few days have been great and I really feel I am picking up my thread again .
The market was great and I sold a drawing (above) and one more of my artists books (the innerworld outside) (hello lovely penny and chrissy ) that I made in a limited edition of 50 last year ....only 20 left if you are interested...... .as well as lovely china and other bits and bobs
When they are gone I will make a new book with my newer work in it ...and it probs will be a hand sewn book.
As it is a public holiday here we decided that a day trip was in order so we took off to the beautiful county of Clare to collect a very large yew tree that our friends was giving us to mark the passing of my mother in law a month ago next wednesday.
We had such a thrilling day , the burren is all around were they live ...it is a limestone pavement which stretches for 25 miles square......its magical , moonical (!!) . otherworldly and just stunning to look at . It is a designated national park and thats where their little cottage lies ! There are BLUE BLUE gentian flowers, orchids ......We all had fun and it was great to be outside.
Danny is the cool dude with the new york bag sauntering down the market early saturday morning (I LOVE danny)
Danny is a native new yorker and has lived in Ireland a long time.He has a stall selling hot donuts that he makes there in the market. He is an artist for sure , makes all his own clothes ,is the sweetest guy and very photogenic. If you look carefully behind the guy in the red jacket (Dirk organic veg) you can see my stall .
