I painted "Until the Sea Shall Free Them" (Suzanne,Leonard Cohen 😊) especially for Kinvara Bay Sailing Club, hope it helps to raise a few bob for this community based non-profit organisation which teaches adults and kids how to sail even if you don't have a boat! It's on display in the Pier Head and will be raffled in the Sailing Tent during the Cruinniu this weekend 10th-12th August, 5 euro a ticket!
