Pastel Artwork...the Everest Exhibition
In 1993, the first ever Irish team went to climb Mount Everest. One of the climbers was my neighbour and I had the idea along with an artist friend to put together an art exhibition to help with the massive fundraising they had to undertake. For my part I had been away from the paper quite some time, so I was astonished when the work started rolling in, piece after piece. Here are just a few of the pastel paintings which are in private homes around the country.
