Thanks a lot Zirco, I appreciate that you appreciate the work on the windows, I almost gave in because it was endless, and all the layers in between the floors. Looks simple enough now that it's done. It's mostly freehand and the board wasn't too difficult.
I found the original pencil sketches of those two pieces yesterday that I drew about 18 months ago. Thanks again. ;)

White Pawns are keyholes in the Red doors. You got the grumpy Queen and the Black and White Kings touching back to back, impossible in Chess. The Bishop looks like Ernie from Sesame Street haha. I'm mad. :D ;)

You do have Rocker, you're the sweetest Lady who would help anybody without a thought, that's an Art in itself. What not take up a drawing class in Blackrock, you'll be amazed what you can do, that you thought you could never do. ;)

Thanks a mill Sinead, I have always had vivid dreams, sometimes I hate waking up from them. I play Chess on the phone before I sleep and I do tend to jaywalk across roads, so a kind of combination of both. Cheers. ;) :D

Amazing drawings there Snowy, great work. thumbright.


Here's my latest. I've added more since this photo and toned down the sky (a little) for Rocker. ;)
How are the Church Steeples now Gulliver? :D

I've left it large so you can right click on it / view image and zoom for details.

No Rocker, I still have them. I submitted them to the open exhibition in the Lexicon last year but they were too big, took up too much wall space.

Well myself and HID had the privilege of seeing the exhibition of paintings and art installations by Sallynoggin Art students at the Lexicon last night.
Star of the show has to be our own Strum!
All his painting and installations were first class with his guitar chosen as the centre piece of the exhibition.
Get along to the Lexicon to stand in awe of the standard of local talent!!
