STONE and STRING

On our last day out we came home by a circuitous route that took us very close to the Burren
National Park. We did this because I thought I had seen a neolithic feature on my iPhone which turned out not to be one, however,  I really did see a stone man looking at me over the hedge.




Can you see his face  ?


As you are probably aware I have not posted for awhile and the reason is that Mrs H with a slight bit of help from me has been very busy preparing for her new exhibition. She has been doing all the behind the scenes work that artists have to do with their work, visits to the framers, selecting the right frame colour and style for each painting, besides having them all photographed and then resizing the images for our printer to make the art cards.



Additional cords


On the table is one of the finished paintings that we have brought back from the framers and you can see his cord stretching across the back which will be used by the new owner. 
For exhibition purposes I have to put an additional hanging cord on to allow the viewers eye to see the detail of the paintings.




A stash of completely finished works with their exhibition cords added.




The poster advertising Mrs H's Exhibition

  6. Thank you for the comments Mitchell. The stone/d man is rather a comical looking character and I have no idea who he reminds me of except I think might have met him.
    Mrs H has just informed me that once the exhibition is up and running, she will be displaying her paintings on her blog with a written explanation about each one. See above for the link to the ever living ones dot blogspot dot com

    1. After I had taken the photo I started to wonder how I could fit him into a blog and then I saw a vague link between him and the Cailleach which seems to have worked.
      Thank you for commenting Hilary.
