Tyrone Guthrie Centre

by Mary Cassat
I just received a letter that made me scream (in a good way)- I've been awarded some writing time at The Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Monaghan. So a big thanks to Kildare County Councils Art Office - I'll be heading up to Monaghan on Friday with a big smile on my face. And it's lovely to get a letter - it really is a dying art. I asked my ten year old what he thought the woman in the Cassat painting was doing, he thought she was cleaning her face with a napkin! I'm bringing him straight home to lick an envelope :)
