I have been working on these two lately - one is a winter snow scene with robin and the other a beach scene. Both not fully finished, needing a bit more work yet.

Hi everyone! What a beautiful autumn day here in North County Dublin. Just finished sweeping up leaves and tidying my garden and putting the leaves into bags for making leaf mould for next years fertilizer for the garden! :) Dog had great fun running up and down the garden like a wild hare while I was doing it! I finished this little collage earlier, about things you find on the beach. I hope you like it. :) Eileen

Textures in nature/tree bark

Hi everyone! This is my latest artwork in my nature series. Its is all about texture and based loosely on tree bark. I wasn't sure which way to show it as I liked it several ways but these two I like best. I hope you like it. :-)

This is a mixed media/collage painting I did over the past few days and I enjoyed doing it very much! It is based on things found on a beach . I loved doing the textural effects and learned a lot from it, great fun! (:o)

July 30th 2012

I also did these two abstracts as a 'freeing'up' exercise which I love doing! I love just letting go and slopping on water and paint and inks!

And this is one I did quite a while ago before I went into the 'Nature - up close and personal series'!

                                                         It's called "The shell pickers"

Hi everyone!

New work!

Hi everyone!
I haven't put up any of my work for a while so I will just give you a quick glance at some of the pieces I have been working on lately.

All are still based on the nature theme and I am experimenting with different ways of expressing myself this way and loving the journey! 

Enjoy! (:o)

"My second trip to Berlin, Aug 2011"

Hi everyone! 
I want to share with you today, my second visit to Berlin in August/September last year, 2011.

I only went for 4 days this time and I went to see my son Glenn's mural that he had been commissioned to do, along with other artists to put up a mural each on the entrance archway to the Fellini art gallery in Berlin.  I wanted to be there for the preview show of the opening of the exhibition which had many artists and the muralists combined. 

Glenn had been working on this mural for quite a while and had sent several updates every few days and it was such a feat as it is all done in coloured pencils! And when you think that whatever about doing a drawing this size on paper but this was on a stone wall  and so amazing and he certainly used up many, many pencils! 

Per usual, I was nervous going off over, flying on my own but I made it ok and Glenn met me per usual. He had moved address from the previous time so he showed me around the new area, the weather being good, it was lovely.

The mural was fantastic! I love the 'eye' part in particular, very striking and mysterious! Also loved the butterfly. And the colours were so rich!
His fellow-muralists all had stunning work also and I am putting up photos of most of them for you to enjoy.

We had a lovely opening night and a small group of us went off afterwards around Berlin to a music venue beside the River Spree which had a man made beachfront and it was really lovely to lounge around in the sand and listen to the music late at night by candlelight, lamplight etc.,
We also went to a small club/pub and had some food and a few games of pool!! That was great fun!
I hadn't much time this time to do very much as it was only really 3 days there. I will put up another few random photos of my trip here.

Over all, I enjoyed my second tripto Berlin - and that one will probably be my last as Glenn and the lovely Aiva are moving to the UK shortly to Brighton and I wish them both the best of luck and hope they will enjoy it!

But of course, that means I will be visiting there next and will have another story to tell when I do!
