Aqua Aerobics

Delighted to be back at Aqua Aerobics today, and to have time to do a few lengths afterwards rather than run and queue for the showers...on a cold bright February morning, sliding into the warm water and sheer joy of music, movement and colours of waffles....Happy Out!

Friday

Groundhog Day 2nd Day of February

I learn something new every day, take 2.

One of my favourite American movies was Ground Hog Day, with the great Bill Murray.

 I always thought the 'groundhog' was a fictitious creature.  Turns out it 's real - and there is a very famous Groundhog called Phil, who predicts the weather TODAY!!

Here's my sketch of Phil!

Happy Groundhog Day Phil.

Snowdrops, St. Bridget's Day and Not the start of Spring


1 February, St. Bridget's Day Snowdrops
You learn something new every day!!  I always thought St. Bridget's Day heralded in the start of Spring.
Sometime since I left school all that has changed and Spring now begins in Ireland in March!

Sunday

Seville Marmalade

My #SundayWink goes to Paddington 2 the movie- sheer delight on a cold damp January day – and it inspired me to make marmalade again –

Introducing CINNAMON into the recipe for the first time.
Pectin from the pips, lemon and cinnamon sticks marinating.

 hand made labels.....






I love Seville marmalade, and the colour orange, especially at this time of year.    Bitter sweet and extra chunky slices of peel – heaven to share on hot toast!   Seven jars  - yummmm!
The framed print is from years ago and a series done at the Black Church Print Studio, also celebrating Oranges.

What a Difference!


Just to share for anyone who feels like some sunshine.... 

I left Naas in DENSE fog, emerging into a beautiful sunny day and that magical blue hue on the water in Dun Laoghaire today.
The ship in the distance looked as though it was floating above the sea.  The video really doesn't do it justice.
Once back on the M50 the fog enveloped again.  Amazing how different two very close places could be.

A WOW moment

The Line; Phase II  January 2018

I painted the work below at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, and was disappointed at the time because I had several pieces 'in hand' with me to complete and I felt I had no time to explore further.

What's meant for you will not pass you by!!

The painting evolved over Christmas 2017 - flipped on its head and a new horizon appeared.


Original; The Line  October 2017
Maybe this is a piece I will continue to return to, photographing each stage, rather than have a series of panels exploring a theme.

The Line; from recent Artists Residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig


THE LINE
In my work I love to evolve.  Recent conversations about children painting with water inspired me to do the same.  What emerges is fresh, new, at the edge of my awareness and yet very definite when it emerges on canvas.
I love too when my paintings change throughout the day,  depending on how light falls.
