Sorry I didn't make national History museum today - landed at the rds Art fair(some great paintings there too) and realised i hadn't a key to lock my bike. Anyway as the kind rds folks minded my bike in a back room i decided to give kildare street a miss so i wouldn't have to worry about bike security, did anyone else show up at museum?

Glad you enjoyed the art show James! I went Sat. am for 2 hours, and also discovered some mighty art. Very inspiring! Great atmosphere there all round this year, as the stand fees were greatly reduced and lots of exhibitors were at least able to cover their expences. Did anyone else make it there?

Hi James - several of us turned up late at the museum, and at different times, so I don't think anyone did any drawing (except Catherine, perhaps), and we decided to head home early.

Oh well we'll have to pull out all the stops next Sunday if we go sketching to make up for it!

Hi guys, also went to RDS last Sunday with James and the mini gang. Didn't know there were tickets available, but even though gladly paid for the entry as there were really great pieces there. One of the artists gave me fantastic tips and huge list of what to use for one particular technique I really like.

Veronika, I never fail to be amazed at the generosity of some of the artists at the show. They are so willing to share their knowledge with visitors who admire their work, and are curious about their techniques. As they say, What goes around, Comes around!
