Train journeys can sometimes lead to the most unexpected encounters. Last Wednesday was no exception. Travelling from Dublin back to Ballyhaunis I met an amazing group of women who meet up regularly to go to concerts, plays, art courses etc. They travel around Ireland mainly and were on their way to Westport. One of the group was interested in the cards I produce, especially The Old Cottage. I know that she wants to paint a copy of it, so it was a no brainer. She made me a Christmas card as we were travelling and I’m sending her this as a thank you.
