New Look: Thank you Vicky!

I really want to thank Vicky Sargeant, my assistant in the Irish Board, for redesigning this site. Vicky with her can-do attitude, fearlessness of all things technological and her immense creativity and resourcefulness made it happen and I’m so grateful.

It’s been a while since I painted on eggs. An unexpected but welcome burst of physical and creative energy put them in mind for some reason. I thought those white flowers that I included in the last post might look good in and on eggs.

I’ve had an opened-out and sky-blue painted teabag lying around on my desk for ages and I haven’t been sure what to do with it. This evening I had an idea that some birds flying might be interesting. So that’s what I painted.
