Lucian Freud in Dublin

From 2016 until 2021, Irish Museum of Modern Art of Dublin has on loan from private collections, some of the works of and about Lucian Freud.

He is one of the greatest realist painters of the 20th century. Lucian Freud is very frank in his brush strokes on the canvas, and it was pleasant to find some details hidden in his paintings.

You’ll find tickets and directions at the main reception. Enjoy!


Colored glass and smiles

I know is late for resolutions, mine would be to have no expectations and try to keep my optimism, but I take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic year with at least one smile per day. I wish you more, but you get the idea. If you don’t find a reason to smile, just look around you, open your eyes and you’ll find it.

My favorite view, sunshine through colored glass.

And remember, you can smell roses even when running.

Christmas Choral Concert


We’ve had such a lovely evening at St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street Dublin, where D.I.T Conservatory of Music and Drama presented A Christmas Choral Concert featuring DIT Choral Society and DIT Chamber Choir. We were even invited for a sing-a-long of Joy to the world, which we did.

Parfum de jour

Celebrating le quatorze juillet 2016 with a visit at Sheridans Cheesemongers on South Anne Street in Dublin 2, Ireland, wearing a drop or two (or three …) of mon numéro cinq.

If you visit Dublin, you must visit this gorgeous little store. In my visit today, I coudn’t leave without a piece of Knockanore smoked cheese. Is a hard cheese, and it reminded me of the smoked cheeses made in Bran, co. Brasov, Romania. This little piece of gold was made in Cnoc an Oir, the hill of gold, in Waterford, more details can be found here.
