I painted this version of Vincent van Gogh’s bedroom in acrylics.
I did this acrylic painting of Margaret Pearse nee Brady. She married James Pearse, a Dublin man in 1877 and became the mother of Patrick Pearse, Willie Pearse and Margaret Mary Pearse. Her family came from County Meath and settled in Dublin where she was born. She was elected to the Dail in in 1918 as a Sinn Fein T.D.
Mary and I visited the Antique Fair in Clontarf Castle. After the obligatory cup of coffee (overpriced) we made our way to the downstairs rooms. It was €3.50 per person and as it turned out good value for money. There were a variety of stalls well turned out and well presented, selling comic books, paintings, silverware and rings and various nick nacks. I met my friend Frank O’Dea owner of Balla Ban Gallery,selling Knuttel family art, minature’s by Pervanah Mathews, cartoons by Ray Sherlock and Frank’s own shady ladies (painted manaquins). I even invested in an excellent book by John De Courcy Ireland entitled ” The Sea and the Easter Rising”.
Betty Lynch did this lovely painting g of the Grand Canal in acrylics. She is a member of the Coolock Library Art Group.
I did this cartoon illustration of Copper Faced Jack in acrylic paint. John Scott was his rral name. He was around in 1798 but was not involved in the rising.He lived in Clonmel House 17 harcourt Street Dublin 2 and his official title was First earl of Clonmel. His charming nickname was as a result of the tan he got while on holiday.The hotel called Copper Face Jack at 38-39 Harcourt Street is named in his honour.
