The Little Shop in SneemPosted: July 20, 2016
There’s no getting away from the tourist shops in Ireland. And as beautiful as the landscapes are, sometimes I have to stop and draw the towns too. This week the festival is on in Sneem, with rides and games and cotton candy sellers, all set up in the village square. Nearby I found The Little Shop which I drew from a bench in front of the hardware shop. As I approached and saw the bench, I was pretty sure the building housed a cafe. Otherwise why else have a bench? But after I saw the sign it occurred to me that the bench is just for sitting and waiting, or maybe just for sitting and watching. I could get used to this pace of life.
