Home Again...


I just got home from a month in Ireland, a trip that was absolutely wonderful in every conceivable way. The Tyrone Guthrie Center is a stellar place to live, work and eat (and eat and eat) and the artists and staff there are remarkable. Big thanks to everyone there, to director Dr. Pat Donlon, Lavina, Tedd and Doreen, Mary, Theresa and Ingrid, Marcella and Denise, and Eamon.Above, Mary Donnelly and Stephanie Sabatier.

Also hello's to Mary Donnelly, Mary Dorcey, Annie McCartney, Terry Loane, David Gleason,
Alice Coughlin, Stephanie Sabatier, Enda, Phil Coulter, David and Miles, Siofra O'Donovan, Shannon, Neil Martin, Ruth Hickey, Debbie and Fred Ziegler.
Above: Mary Donnelly, David Ferguson, Miles, me and Fred Ziegler at breakfast. Notice, please, the empty bowl of whupped cream that Lavina left where I could find it. Diabolical.

The Big House, viewed from the greenhouse.

Stephanie took this picture of my hand (above) to prove that I did get work done in between funs, and (below), the view from my drawing table, up towards the greenhouse and water tower. The little pond below is alive with frogs, newts and other squiggly things.Neil Martin, cellist, composer and chef-for-the-night at Annaghmakerrig, above, and his sous chef Phillip Coulter below, very blurry shot, as he was working very hard, Neil being a perfectionist and all.
Above, Teddy shows Pat how it's done...

Miss Warby, are you there?


I can't wait to go again next year...
