Green Tuesday in Ireland


This mosaic is really a nostalgic picture story.  Burt and I spent a delightful week of artistic community in the lush country side that is Mulranny, County Mayo, Ireland.  We comprised a like minded bunch eager to share ideas and learn.  A small group, but multinational,the United States, Canada, Ireland, England, and South Africa were all well represented. We had  a lot of laughs, made and saw a lot of art, and ate a lot of really good food.  I can't help but smile when I think of that trip.

  8. We stayed in my friend Cheryl's lovely home overlooking Clew Bay. We all took turns cooking, and we had some great cooks. The Irish lamb platter was the culinary work of our friend Jane from South Africa, and my own Burt made his famous lox from fresh caught Irish salmon. And that just accounts for the pictures you see in the mosaic! Good wine of course made our dinners even better. It was, all in all, a house party extrodinaire!
