Tuesday, July 27, 2010, my work, my life = the world I guess:)

ink on tissue
this drawing is in my little book the innerworld outside of which there are only 10 of the 50 left

the blue house
housepaint on paper
I did this in college and my fave teacher liked it......then so did I !

um well this is a pheaseant embroidery obviously (love it and its blue like the painting above)

this is a detail from my show which is on at the moment in the boyle arts festival.
The trunk was my husbands aunts , in which all her belongings were carried when she travelled to america in the 1940.s
oh I am a silly , just realized that I have to check and allow comments now since I had to do that moderation thing due to lots of long lost chinese friends , if only they wrote to me in english.
There I was feeling a little sad , my dear parents just left for their flight home after a lovely event filled visit .
My mother staking up my delicate poppies to a twig , tying them all on by hand with green sewing thread.....sigh .
I am showing off some older work that has remained unseen till now and I will put it all on flickr .
I hope you are all well out there in my outerworld inside x

I have updated my hand drawing page and you can go to it directly here :D

Feelystone, have generously opened up their premises for the Boyle Arts Festival
There are five sculptors working alongside the stonemasons....all very exciting.
I will be present next thursday from 10 am till 4pm when I look after the group show, if you can make it :)

We will be having an exhibition at Feelystone Boyle Co.Roscommon for those who maybe able to attend .It will be open from 10-4pm daily until friday the 30th July .The opening is at 7pm this friday and just in case anyone is interested I have everything under control really I do :)
I will show a small selection from my ongoing body of work A Song For Edith.Her life and re-imagining it has certainly touched my spirit in some way.

light heat power (what more do you need )

Hello friends ......
I have been away a little while with my family and we had fun:)
My drawing has been accepted by the lovely carpaccio magazine
Thank you to cendrine as it was her work with them that alerted me to the publication (once again thank you dear for the inspiration- wation ♥♥)

*arklow pigeon club sign , love this handmade sign and the thoughts of the pigeon fanciers meeting here
*dear angelas cuttings that she gave me to bring back home west (the child of prague is traditionally put outside here for fine weather , I thought he\she may help my little cuttinglings )
*a cute little shoe repair shop in Arklow which has been there for years.The individualness of the shopfront (love it !)
*detail of shoe repair shop window which was crammed with shoe ornaments etc
*light heat power.....what more can I say !
this old shop front was in the amazingly beautiful city of Kilkenny.

Thank you maria and Emma of Carpaccio magazine.
