Dear friend, companion on this journey,
You are doing such a nice work with your blog! Thank you for sharing with us!

Hello, I find your blog fantastic! a very inspiring take on art : ) I’m not sure whether you accept nominations, but I have listed you amongst my top ten blogs for the Liebster Award. If you’d like to contribute, here’s the link:
Have a wonderful day, Elli
thank you very much, I”ve never been nominated for a blog award, I’m delighted, you have a good day too!
hi again Elli
I’ve just followed the link, and I’m so disappointed to admit that my blogging skills are not up to the task.!My posts are nearly always a series of. images of my own work uploaded from my photo gallery on my tablet, with a few words underneath. Very occasionally I manage a link. The copying of all your questions, with answers, and links to 10 other blogs to nominate them is more than I can manage on my phone or tablet just now, I’d just make a mess of it and it would not make a good blog!
Thanks so much for the suggestion, tho, and by all means remove me from your list
thanks again and I’ve followed your blog anyway
2 cats now, RIP lovely Milo, thanks for 16 cuddlesome years
Nice to meet you Liz 🙂
you too Alison
Thanks for liking and following my blog. It’s always good to hear and see from the Mother Country. Like many of us here in the states my Great Grandfather immigrated to this country in 1849. He was originally from Ballena in county Mayo.
thanks to you too Richard. I’m an immigrant myself, I’m English, born in Germany and moved with my Irish husband to County Donegal in 2007
Thanks for visiting and following my blog. I’ve been through a few pages here and love your paintings. Looking forward to reading/seeing more!
thank you very much, Michael, the pages are a bit out of date now, somehow I forget about them, what with all the painting and posting going on!!
Perfectly worded ‘About’ I look forward to looking at your art. I have 2 dogs and hope someday to own a cow and a horse.
thanks for stopping by Ann Marie
I like your paintings 🙂 thanks for following my blog
Just spent 30 pleasurable minutes wandering through your site! love your abstracts! 🙂
Thanks Loredana 🙂
I thank you for stopping by my post and like it………which medium do you use to paint. you work is beautiful.
I mostly use oils, sometimes mixed with ‘cold wax medium’. Cold wax medium is beeswax mixed with solvent. It mixes with oils to make a paste that I apply with a roller or palette knife with many thin layers
I also use acrylic and graphite sticks
And with all mediums I often use oil bars as the top layer to highlight the texture
Thanks for your comments, likes and for stopping by my blog
thanks for following my blog. Your work it wonderful full of movement and light.
thanks for your lovely comment 🙂
I would like to sign up, follow you…how would I do that??! Thanks. I really enjoy your artwork. Captivating.

Thanks for checking out my blog. I am jealous of your profile photo.
thanks, cool innit?:)
I’m jealous that you get to walk on the beach. Love your work!
thanjs very much Amy, just back from a beach walk, saw some dolphins ( or maybe porpoises) just close in to shore. Huge waves making crashes like firecrackers as rhey hit the sand. Amazingly warm for mid september in Donegal, about 20 degrees. Not to rub it in or anything lol 🙂
I hope to make it to Ireland some day. Keep doing that beautiful work.
thanks, you too and good luck with moving, tried to comment on your lovely ‘Mexican skies’ painting just now, but didnt send for sone reason. I will keep dropping in to see your lovely work. take care 🙂
Nice site. I have family From all over Ireland including Killbegs. I love visiting Donegall!
great to hear from you, yes, Donegal is a very spe ial place 🙂
Thank you for liking my art Liz! 🙂
Hi, Liz. Thanks for following me, Your art is lovely. I look forward to seeing more of it and understanding your process. I actually want to start painting though I have a different style–more like German Expressionism. Do you ever sell your art? We are big fans of Ireland, btw, and Irish literature.
hi Kinneret, thanks. Yes, I sell my paintings in shops, galleries and online. I have a couple of solo shows coming up in galleries in Ireland in 2015, and will have paintings in group shows too. Sometimes people email me if they see something they like here on my blog or on facebook and we do it by post. I am a fan of German Expressionism and also Fauvism. Please keep in touch its nice to hear from you 🙂
Love ur simplicity to complexity .enjoyed reading info about you . I have two cats not as charming set of pets like you .
Thank you for sharing your story .
thanks Ayesha. We have an extra pet visiting for Christmas, too, our daughter has a new collie pup and she is bringing her for a visit.
Hi Liz, thanks for visiting Beauty Along the Road and leaving your footprint (or – thumbprint?) so I could follow you back here.
thanks for following,b and Im looking forward to browsing through more of your lovely blog 🙂
Looks like you have a really nice set up. Maybe one day when I retire from teaching…
Pleased to have found your intriguing blog and looking forward to further exploration. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox.
hi Thom, thanks and welcome 🙂
I am looking for Pino Nicolleti, Matera curator. Do you have any contact info from her.
Thanks, Susan Miller
hi Susan, Pino is the administrator of the facebook group Arte Internationale, maybe you could contact him there, Liz
Hey, Liz! Nice to connect with you again! Missed you, girl 🙂
What a delightful blog, and give your dogs a big hug from us. Dropped in here to say a big “Thank you” for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. That means a lot. (And would love a guest from you at any time!)
Thanks Paul. Don’t know how ‘a guest’ from me would work, but please feel free to reblog any posts or images. Hariod occasionally uses some of my paintings as illustrations for her wonderful posts. All I ask is that you simply credit any images you use. Thanks again. Dogs duly hugged 🙂
Loved looking at your art.
Thanks Patricia. Call back soon! 🙂
beautiful paintings, I thoroughly enjoyed my tour! very free and creative approach. Lovely work. cheers, Debi
Thanks Deb – come back soon 🙂
I’m sure I will….. I enjoyed your expressive paintings so much, I decided to ‘Follow’ 🙂
Thanks for signing up to follow by blog. I wish you success with your work in the year ahead 🙂
Thanks. And to you! Let’s be hopeful 💛
Hi Liz- Thanks for visiting my blog & liking my post about Air Plant Love. Your work is lovely! I will be taking a printmaking course in Ballycastle in June and friends & I will maybe be passing through Donegal. Do you have a local gallery to visit there?
How great that you are printmaking in Ballycastle – I did my cold wax course at Ballinglen Arts Foundation with Rebecca Crowell a couple of years ago. We live right up in the North West corner of Donegal on Cruit Island, I don’t have any work in local galleries at the moment (except for a couple at The Workhouse in Dunfanaghy), but you’re welcome to call to the house for a cuppa and to see some paintings if you like. My email is email@example.com if you want to let me know nearer the time 🙂
Thank you, I will certainly do that. I will be studying monoprinting with Ron Prokrasso from Santa Fe, New Mexico. It will also be my first time to your lovely country of Ireland. So looking forward to it and hoping to meet you and see your lovely art!
I hope you enjoy the course. Be warned, roads are small in the West and it takes a long time to get anywhere! We are about 3 hours drive North of Ballycastle!
Thank you for dropping by my blog, Liz (I am assuming after subtracting Donegal from the equation). I quite like the thought of your little companions in life along with walks on the beach and painting your heart out.
thanks Dippy (or Dotty!) 🙂
You can go for both if you like 🙂 My name is Arundhati.
Arundhati is a beautiful name, I’ll stick with that! Namaste 🙂
Haha thanks, it is growing on me still 🙂 Namaste!
Alas – I have been waiting all this time to “donnegallizdoyle” – I’m happy now.
Welcome, cead mile failte, croeso !!!
PS Eugene, you have an extra ‘n’ in there, just in case you were ever searching for me lol 🙂
Lovely to meet you today Liz and thanks for the tour! Your piece will hang in Dixie the Backwards Van, we love it! Stay in touch and best of luck!
Lovely to meet you two too! And a special treat to have tea in your van, thanks! Enjoy Aranmor, and I’ll see you next time 🙂
Found you page while looking at Cruit items. We are looking forward to seeing you work this summer. We enjoy your work. We have recently purchased a home on Cruit, and are visiting from the United States–we live in Iowa. Our son is a photographer and is doing a project for a University class on Cruit. I hope you two can meet. Jeff
Hi Jeff. Would be great to meet. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange it
I met you at the Guggenheim yesterday
Just checked out your wonderful paintings !
Best of luck with your exhibition
Hi Finola, thanks for looking me up! You’re right, I couldn’t spell your artist friend’s name! Maybe you could email me email@example.com
Such a great day at the Guggenheim yesterday, and it was great to meet you!
Good afternoon. I hope this is the rigjt address.
Our guests ran into travel delays, so we are now in Dublin. We will miss Malachy’s concert, unfortunately. We will ne back w/ students in Wed.
Jeffrey and Dana
Hi Jeff, sorry about your delays ! No worries about the concert – hopefully see you later in the week
