I have been quite literally in another world for the past week and just woke up to the fact that I have neglected this blog since shortly before leaving for Ireland. We are nearing the end of the week-long Oil&Wax Workshop at Ballinglen Arts Foundation
, and it has been an incredibly fun and rewarding experience. Ten artists have gathered here from as far away as Australia, and including artists from Denmark, Sweden, the US and Canada, and Ireland. I have enjoyed the opportunity to present class over a period of seven days, which allows time for drawing, more slide presentations, and several trips out to see the surrounding, spectacular landscape. Below are some photos from our field trips to Moyne Abbey, Belderrig, and Benwee Head near Carrowteigh.
I will post more later about the class and my Fellowship period ahead (six more weeks to paint and enjoy!)
