It will take awhile for me to download all of the pictures taken during this road trip once more to Dublin, Ireland but one image that I do want to share is of these trees painted on the restaurant window of di luca wines & trattoria. A local artist works with the restaurant to change the window scene. After I am gone the window will become more winter themed though these white trees do remind me of winter. We were lucky enough to get a table at this restaurant. Food was great and the people, both staff and other diners, were wonderful. If you have chance, do visit: https://www.diluca.ie/

… I just make myself sit in a place, for just a few moments, and watch where the sunlight falls. And sometimes I notice that there are places where I have to shine my own light into a shadowed nook to appease my curiosity.  One day recently, while shining such a light, this is what I saw at Trinity Church.

My little friend, now 7-years old, visited recently.  She went to her corner, picked up some blank paper and her basket of crayons.  As she sat down to draw, she said, “I enjoy playing with paper.”  I could only reply, “So do I.”  This year I have been playing with paper in new ways.

Spending time perusing sites like the Library of Congress Prints and National Gallery of Art. Imagining how available imagery might appear on items from a stamp to a sticker to a paper plate.  It is a new creative outlet, producing products that I hope people enjoy for themselves or as gifts for others of all ages.

My image selections are influenced by the people and events around me.  In recent weeks I’ve found myself in conversation with cat lovers, musicians and folks who enjoy entertaining others.

 

The shop where these items can be found is called StationeryWorks because it began with my desire to dress up the letters that I was sending to friends and family.  It will continue to evolve. I hope you have a chance to check it out. 😉
