Guinness to Haggis

Wow! I just returned from a two week trip to Ireland and Scotland. What a fantastic time! This trip was a dream come true--on my bucket list. Went to Scotland first--to Oban and the Isle of Mull. What a beautful place! After a few days there, traveled to Ireland--Galway, Ennis, Aran Islands, Donegal, Belfast, the Slieve Cliffs and Giants Causeway. I got to meet my family in Ennis--a fantastic group of people who made me feel so very welcome! My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer and get to know them better. All the more reason for me to go back!
I shot over 1700 photos--lots of reference material for paintings. Now that I'm back, I need to sort through them all and hit the canvas!! You can see some of the photos on my Facebook page, or on the blog here. And watch out for some new paintings in the not-too-distant future!
