A sculpture in context exhibition

As promised, here is a follow on post from A portrait sitting.
The opening night of 'Sculpture in Context'  an exhibition happening in The Botanic Gardens in Dublin from the 8th till the 21st of October 2011.
It was a rainy evening and was beginning to get dark quite early so I didn't get to see the full exhibition that was spread out all over the Botanic Gardens. I will definitely go back and make a day of it before the exhibition finishes.

Ayelet won an award on the night for this piece, it was stunning in its intended location. I'm pretty sure it won't fit on my mantlepiece but you never know!

See no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil, also by my good friend Ms Ayelet Lalor.

One of the many victorian greenhouses in the gardens.

I LOVED these guys!!!! Ayelet was also totally smitten.

Okay there were quite a number of sculpture pieces that I really really wanted!! Here are a few more..........

A Dirty Fabulous Photo shoot at my house

We had a photo shoot at my home for Dirty Fabulous. I took a few behind the scenes snaps for y'all to peruse. It was a great day, i had a big clean up before everyone got there and then we trashed the gaff!  Very tall models, make up artist, hair kit, rails of vintage dresses and accessories, cameras, lights, photographer and props can make a house feel tiny all of a sudden!

 The fabulous Paul Marconi at work with my heavily pregnant sister watching  over Meagan for little adjustments needed, like smoothing fabric and stray wisps of hair!

Our menfolk were relegated to the breakfast room with coffee and the Sunday papers to keep them occupied. You know the way guys hate having models lounging around the house all day.........
