Being a self-employed artist is probably the most difficult job really. You need to be highly motivated in the tasks you set for yourself. You need to be able to work on your inspirations and be totally focused on your targets. If your painting does not work first time you need to be able to learn from your experience and use what worked in another piece. Your ability to have confidence in your journey exploring your choice of subjects in paint is important. As regards doing workshops, bringing fun into the entire effort is the most important element to achieve. Your audiences will learn in a more sustainable way and produce drawings to be proud of.

Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobs


Monday, January 17, 2011 




Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobsAbout 850 construction jobs are to be created as Intel expands its Leixlip technology campus, the company has announced.

The technology giant, which posted record revenues last year, is investing $500 million (€376.9 million) in the construction project as it expects continuing worldwide demand for its products and services in 2011.

A further 200 high end employment positions will be created at the Leixlip campus once the construction work has been completed.

Commenting on the news, IDA Ireland chief executive officer Barry O'Leary welcomed the move and said it is a "significant strategic investment for Ireland".

"Given that the initial impact over the next two years will result in over 1,000 jobs between construction, contract and full time employment it is immensely positive news," he added.

Mr O'Leary also noted that high end manufacturing is key for Ireland's economic growth.

Last week, the IDA said it was supporting French financial software systems developer Murex as it expands its operations in Dublin.
