New Orleans, (JusticeNewsFlash.com) — Portrait artist, author and longstanding friend to the trial lawyer community, Trevor Goring, launched an innovative Irish travel/portrait package at the American Association for Justice 2009 New Orleans conference, extending an invitation to his North American clients to visit Ireland and commemorate the journey in fine art portraiture.
The offer begins at Cork airport where guests are warmly greeted, with a limousine service for the duration of their stay, and taken to the five star Hayfield Manor hotel to relax in the Master Suite and enjoy the most luxurious Irish antique setting possible. A leisurely walk across the delightful gothic campus of University College Cork, through the stone corridors and along the banks of the River Lee, leads to the beautifully situated riverside artist’s studio where the portrait sessions take shape. Dinner with the artist and friends in Cork’s gastronomic restaurants, a visit to Blarney Castle, an optional historic pub crawl, and for golfers, an exclusive arrangement with the Old Head golf links, giving privileged access to the course and the members’ club facilities, all serve to complete this unique offer.
Experienced AAJ attorneys immediately seized this chance for creating a powerful symbol of their law firm’s continuity whilst fulfilling a longstanding desire to visit Ireland. Younger members of prominent firms suggested it as the ideal retirement package for their most senior partners. Those with Irish roots needed little encouragement to see this opportunity for returning to the land of their heritage and having the connection commemorated on canvas. Golfers salivated at the privileged access to some of the finest links in the world whilst having the moment recorded in fine art portraiture.
A limited number of portrait sessions are now available in May-June and September-October. For details on dates, pricing and to discuss portrait requirements contact the artist at [email protected] View examples of the artist’s work at www.imagesofjustice.com
