I was entertaining the guests of Joanne and Sam at their drinks reception in the Clarion Hotel, Sligo on Saturday. The weather was fantastic, but of course the big draw wasn’t the sun, it was me, and I’d a brilliant spot right in the middle of the floor which ensured a large audience. There are two advantages to the earlier gig: I don’t need a light on the easel and I get to meet more of the kids. There’s always one or two budding artists among them, and they usually score a few pens from me when they say so, which is worth the smile it gets! There’s more pics below the fold.
