'Leprechaun Coffee Bath' Paddy's Day

Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona daoibh

This unfortunate Leprechaun(what's LEFT of him that is) tried too hard to integrate with the locals on St Patrick's Day by accepting a coffee which as we all know is lethal to the wicked little sprites...only the Uisce Beatha* & the Black Stuff *are safe options. He was probably a young 200 year old jack the lad with issues.

Upside, only three tragedies of this description were recorded at this years festivities.

Was this a case of suicide or a drunken bad decision or ...murder?

Any witnesses please call to city Garda Station and ask for the leprechaun mediation officer..Mike ..He'll take any info. you may have in any form ...Song, Limerick, Mime etc

Little Apples Will Grow Again...

Hi there...anyone?...well here are a couple of collage mixed mediA art pieces that I've almost completed..The first is ..I suppose a modern visual of the news of the day so to know..RECESSION ,-but Little Apples Will Grow's inevitable after all..and so , things in life will also grow to be better time. POSITIVE thinking is the way to go folks! Surround yourself with people who make you feel GrOOvy not mooDy. Find pleasure in the simple things in life.;Love, Beauty,friends, family,Nature,Home,whatEvEr! PleasureLand begins in the positivity & those good ol' simple things- My electric blanket and my book is what does it for ME lately..sad- I AM aware of this!-although now, I DO have a friend or two and a of family & I DON'T live in a tent & I have been known to become enthralled by a duck or an ant trail! I'm waffling now....
The second piece uses a striking original1961 image of a woman seeming very jubilant in herself and the caption ''It's A Long Way''No Longer! is defiant and weighty.
Both pieces incorporate very old original (NO RE-PRINTS!) vintage ephemera;old lace and trims a little German Glass glitter..acrylics and varnish
Both will be shown & for sale in Cafe Irie (2nd floor of Se Si,Temple Bar, Dublin) from Thurs..Gawd that only gives me tomorrow to finish. Back soon!
