There seems to be always a story to tell, and tonight was no exception. I arrived in Rosslare this evening with my spirits waning, as a heavy blanket of cloud was making sure that the "Extra special Full moon" , wasn't going to be seen! Apparently the Moon is the closest to the earth tonight for 18…Continue

Spring is sprung
and the grass is riz,
I don't know,
where my brush is-
An hour ago
I gave it a clean-

I stand now at my easel
ready to faint,
with no brush in my hand,
and only a tissue- to paint!

It was literally painted in the last few minutes of the day…

I named this painting…Continue
