Two of my recently commissioned portraits landed in Australia today – sister and brother Arabella and Bentley. A pair of ‘free-range kids’ as their lovely mother lovingly describes them.
I always get attached to the people I am painting and miss them when the painting is finished, especially with children’s portraits – the next time you see them they’re all grown up!
…new subject, fresh canvas…off I go…lovin’ it!
Well I’ve been a busy boy since my last blog…..
For about a year I’ve had my eye on the old schoolhouse in Enniskerry village with the idea that it would make an incredible venue for ‘all things art’ and after a bit of nudging, pestering and veiled threats I eventually got my hands on it in August…
The Schoolhouse for Art is in essence an educational facility for the study and exploration of arts
and crafts. Located in ‘the old schoolhouse’ in beautiful Enniskerry village, it is a place for learning,
an exhibition space and a meeting place, where images and ideas mingle. It caters for all ages and
all artistic abilities.
