Emanuel Goodson is painting the last supper and has painted in three of the figures. This is still in the underpainting stage.It is expected to be finished in August 2018. If you drop into Donaghmede Shopping Centre you might see the artist in person.
Michael O’Keeffe one of my pupils from Darndale did this acrylic painting of “Flatford Mill” after the English artist John Constable.
I taught the second genealogy class in Darndale. Twelve people came along. I introduced my new system which is simple and cheap and most people can follow once they have the proper format.
Recently I attended Photo shoot in Darndale and posed as Philip one of the twelve apostles. Today I met the artist Emmanuel Godson and got a job doing the background with other artists under guidance of Emmanuel himself. This is a similar process used by Leonardo when he painted the original in Milan. Peter Coyle who plays Saint Peter helped to construct the frame to support the masive canvas. Other bacground artists are also involved.
My niece Niamh Harpur graduated as a vetinary nurse from UCD.
I brought the Golden Years artists from Darndale to visit the refurbished National Art Gallery to further their art education. They were not impressed with the Jack B Yeats paintings but preferred the earlier landscape paintings. The gallery is magnificent and the marriage of Eva and Strongbow was a talking point.
I recently did this acrylic painting of Carcur cottages. They were built by the then Mayor of Wexford Thomas Harpur (1845 -1926).
