new to the Purple Onion

 Sometimes I think running  gallery is the best job in the world. This week I was lucky enough to visit the studio of John Keating where I collected a few paintings for the gallery and as John placed the paintings on the easel we saw 'head hands and feet, in all there human expression....

I also visited Martina O Brien and picked up some of her unique visions of Sandymount and beyond, she  explained her way of working particularly how she paints on aluminum her work is built up slowly and the paintings speak for themselves. Although her work is deeply personal it does have a universal quality which certainly appeals to me.

P.J. Lynch is no stranger to the Purple Onion, his illustrations are art, and I collected some fabulous pieces from P.J. including illustrations from 'the tin soldier',  'The children of Lir', and 'Tales of old Ireland'.
