My friend Róisín in Ireland

 Róisín O'Farrell's movie for her show at
The Doorway Gallery, A room of one's own
You may have noticed that I've written about Róisín O'Farrell
before.  She is a friend in Ireland, who I met through the
blog, and who is an astounding painter, and an incredibly
hard worker.  She has 23 paintings in a show at The Doorway
 Gallery, 24 Sth Fredrick Street, in Dublin, that opened
last Thursday and runs until Oct 16th.

I feel particularly blessed to know her, and I'm continuously
dazzled by her work.  She is a single Mom, raising two
little girls, and painting every day.  And, and, and -- she
quotes me in the movie she made herself to promote
the show.  If you want to buy any of the work, you better
get there either online, or in person fast, because she
usually sells every painting she creates.  Now there's a
mantra I can get behind.  Try it -- "I sell every painting
I create."

Have a loving-your-painting-friends-day.

Ah! Love the paintings. Especially the Wellingtons and those blossoms. What a great idea to have a video like that!
