When I took up painting early last year, I could not have imagined that this year I would be standing in Dun Laoghaire harbour selling my Art to the public. By some incredible twist of fate and maybe good luck and a lot of hard work I found myself there last weekend for the opening of this season's 'Art on the Veranda'. There are around 8-10 artists with a wide array of styles and media selling their work, just before the east pier in front of the Lexicon building.
It was a lot of fun and a huge learning experience....firstly how to put up a tarpulin weather protection cover in extreme gusty winds. Thankfully, I am sharing the veranda with THE most friendliest and helpful group of artists who took me by the hand and helped me get set up. It was a great weekend especially on Sunday when the food market was in full flow with people hanging out, listening to live music and enjoying their weekend walks along the pier. We will be back on 6th/7th May again and usually every fortnight after that. Hope to see you there and please drop by to say hello ;-)
