I have been doing a bit of painting as there is an Exibition on at the art class  just for us painters ....so I thought this would do but it is to big as we must have a special size .....

I love the colours in this ...........and am now on an other smaller one .

I love your style, gorgeous colours too. Have fun painting another one for the exhibition and good luck in it. I actually just picked one of mine up from a members exhition in the Lavit Gallery in Cork.

Thank you all for the lovely complements .......

Clare - what kind of control-freak is deciding what size your paintings should be ???? I'm horrified! As a (very part-time) artist I know that certain subjects demand a certain size of canvas and if it has to be "resized" the subject can lose its impact!

Having had that little rant -good luck with the exhibition!

Hazel this painting was never going into the exhibition ,   I knew the size of the painting that was going for it as space is limited   and we all agreed as there were so many of us from different classes ......

This one is 20" x 18" and if we all had this size there would not be enough space for us all to hang...............

That's so lovely Clare, how talented! It's interesting to see how many iers are artistis also. Unfortunately I am not one of you so I hugely admire anyone who can produce something like that.
