“I'm looking forward to attending Abbey Road On The River in May,” she said. “I have been named the resident artist for AROTR 2014 and a new piece of all four Beatles that I did is being used to promote their event. I will be concentrating mainly on '64 portraits this year.”

Flood's artwork is being featured at this weekend's “February 1964” tribute to “The Ed Sullivan Show” being held in Louisville, KY. The event will conclude with a re-creation of the first Sullivan show performance Sunday night with BritBeat performing as the Beatles.

“So proud to say that my art work is a part of this great event,” she wrote.

Besides BritBeat, also performing are Britbeat, The Jukebox, The Rigbys, Nervous Melvin, The Cryers, Steve Sizemore Group, Traveling Beatleburys, Blue Jay Way, Whiplash, Mario da Silva, Johnny Doughnut Experience and The Nick Peay Band. The recreation of the Sullivan show will also include clips, commercials and an Ed Sullivan imitator.

Flood also told us about another of her projects.

“I am involved in a new short film here in Ireland called 'Lennon Vs. McCartney,'” she said. Shooting starts in March and my work will be used for promotion and posters. The film, an adaptation of a play by Stephen Kennedys, is trying to raise money on indiegogo.com for completion of the film.
