I don't believe that I have ever shared with you that my first love was painting and that at various times in my life I have been quite prolific. During the in-between times my mind was wholly taken up with poetry which filled and satisfied my being.
Creative poetry now seems to have left me high and dry once again ! So I have now returned to my first love once more and have set myself up in our spare room.
In the background are my glass paintings which provide a screen between two rooms.
Here is a replenished supply of my oil painting tools, the tin lid in the foreground is my palette.
I don't believe in wasting money on fancy equipment apart from
my Peterson pipe and baccy of course - both very necessary to me!
Here is my painting, after twenty-five years of being in the doldrums.
This is my first ever attempt at a self portrait (minus glasses and wrinkles of course - wink!)
The background is Co. Clare where we recently holidayed.
