Firstly I like to say a big thank you to all my customers at the Ballymaloe Christmas Craft fair and say how nice it was to meet them all and I really appreciate the interest in my work, in my book, prints & cards and all their kind compliments.
Next is an art and craft fair that is new for me at the 'Mountmellick Christmas Art,Craft & Food fair in County laois on Sunday the 2nd of December in O'Connell Square mountmellick from 1-6pm. It looks to be a fabulous and unusual event with marquees for the many stalls around the square's Christmas tree and entertainment throughout the afternoon.
Once again I will have all my limited edition prints on display at special show prices and a large selection of my artists greetings cards,some for Christmas and some for any occasion.My pack of Irish song bird cards make a lovely stocking filler as does the pack of 'Grumpy baby Wrens' cards.
Below is the cards in my Irish song bird pack of six cards for just E 11.50
And this is the 'Grumpy Baby Wrens' pack of six (the same) for just E 9.95
I will have my artist's book 'Scattered with light, painting the beauty of nature' for sale which would make a lovely present for anyone interested in Art, Nature, Horses and the Irish landscape. The detailed notes and step by step photographs of how the paintings were created make it absolutely ideal for anyone with an interest in painting in oils.
The best selling prints at last week fair at Ballymalloe were of the river Suir, Tipperary & the river Caragh, Kerry-
It's the Christmas craft fair season again and next weekend I will have a stall at the wonderful Ballymaloe Christmas Craft fair at the grainstore at Ballymaloe, Shanagarry, Co. Cork, this year it includes the evening of Friday 16th 6pm-9pm, as well as Saturday and Sunday the 17th & 18th of November from 10 am - 6pm. This will be my third year of exhibiting at Ballymaloe and I will have lots of new gift ideas and Christmas cards along with my limited edition prints and greetings cards of birds and country scenes. These are the Christmas designs, this year I will have some great value packs and gift boxes of the cards as well as selling them singly.
I will have the full range of my limited edition prints at special show prices, a fantastic gift for someone who loves art, nature, the Irish landscape or horses. Here is just a selection but you can see the full collection on my website.( I will have some framed prints as well as unframed)
For the first time I will be selling my artist's book entitled 'Scattered with Light, Painting the beauty of nature'. The book is A4 sized and has 102 pages with high quality images of my paintings with detailed notes and practical advice and techniques including some step by step photographs to show how the paintings were created. This book would be the perfect Christmas gift for anyone with an interest in Art, nature, the Irish landscape or horses and if they also paint a little themselves it will be an valuable treasure trove of advice and encouragement. The book can be purchased on my website's online shopping page for 35 euro (inc.P&P) but why not save 10 euro and buy it at the show for just 25 euro and if you wish I will also sign the book for you.
