If you’d like to buy this painting then shout at me publicly and/or privately to make arrangements – which will be by bank transfer or cash. As ever I’m grateful for you sharing this with people who might like, let’s call it a village, or rural Dublin, or whopping wonderful trees. But you don’t have to.
I was born here. Kind of. Not on stage, you understand, but where exactly the Rotunda, the Ambassador, and the Gate all start and finish, well, I don’t have the dates to hand as when they all started splitting into different entities.
But anyway, The Gate. I love this view of it on Cavendish Row. Because of the shapes. Look at it. There’s arches, and curves, and columns and a portico, and a fountain, and a big roundy bit, as well as a modern squarish, but sympathetic, add-on. There’s even places to lock your bikes – though I left them out. On the corner opposite there’s a little cafe with seats outside that give you a perfect view of it for sketching. And for drinking tea, as it happens. Word of warning though, if a bus comes down and blocks your view, this isn’t Lusk – it’s unlikely to reverse out of your sight line.
Tell Lily’s Cafe I sent you.
The way the sale works is that whoever messages me first, publicly by comment (typically the quickest way), or privately by whatever means, well I tell them they’re first, then mark the painting as sold – if necessary tell other people that alas they were not first – and I make arrangements privately with you for payment, delivery, that sort of thing. And this is the time where I ask you to consider telling people about this painting – especially if it’s unsold or just because you think people would like to look at it – and I’m grateful when you do.
