I just bought a new van, and I am thrilled with it! it's a Romahome Dimension 2, dinky - only 16ft 4", with shower, loo, fridge and cooker etc, fantastically well set out and just perfect in every way. I road tested in Dale, Pembs, the weekend after I collected it, slept in all the beds - enormous double or 2 singles, had a shower, used the oven, grill and burners, and the diesel heater, and it was all wonderful.
My neighbours keep finding me out there in it. Not quite going brrm brrm, but not far off....
And it's crowning glory is, I've had it signwritten - by Harrisgraphics in Porthcawl, and now it looks really funky to boot. See if you can spot it!!!! I'm planning to get out more and paint, staying away from home. More pochades!
I'm hoping that by directing traffic to my website, people will choose to buy online rather than in person from my gallery, which isn't open when I'm not there. That way, i can get out more and paint. That's the plan, anyway.

Launched my new website:http://www.suemcdonagh.co.uk.
It's a buy online site - Enjoy browsing!
I have been trying to be everywhere at once for a couple of years now, i.e. if I'm in the studio/gallery, I can't get outside to paint or get new reference material, and if I'm outside painting, I miss all of you who pop in for a browse. And browsers often turn into buyers!
This way, you get the opportunity to shop at your leisure, in your own home, at any time of the day or night.
I have just put some nice work into a great new gallery in Llandeilo: The Rooms Gallery, Tel 01558 823 932. Entitled 'High Summer' is an exhibition of paintings, sculpture & ceramics. And not only but also, poetry & prose readings featuring
John Bilsborough, Rona Campbell, Laurence James, Simone Mansell Broome and Peter Read.
Launches this weekend, Sat 20 June 1pm onwards. Tea and cakes in the garden.
