Enjoyed your portrait of John Jordan (Poet). My favourite lecturer in UCD, 1961-1962. Always entertaining and educational. Unfortunately fell too early to the demon drink. Could smell the whiskey as he came into the lecture hall even at 10.00am in the morning. A great talent, proven by his academic prowess at such an early age; alas, gone too soon. As they say, "those whom the gods love die young".

Reg, great to see you're still painting. I think your 2007 work is at least as fine as anything you've done in the past. If anything, your years have brought a deeper, more complex insight into character. Carry on, my friend. Richard

I viewed a documentary called Portrait of a portrait artist , you were in France. I enjoyed it very much and I enjoyed seeing some of your art. Thank you for sharing your work in that way.
