Knockan Stockan Music Festival Photos

It was very wet, it was very windy, it was sometimes sunny, and it was always fabulous. Here’s some photos of Knockan Stockan Music Festival in Wicklow that I took exactly a year ago.

Birds Wires Grass Paintings as Prints

As the original paintings I’ve done to date of the Birds Wires and Rooks Grass pictures are all sold, I’ve now made most of them available as prints together with some other bird paintings. More will be added.

The above picture is a collage of some of the bird paintings available as prints. It links to [...]

Art Show by Bicycle

Recently I showed some paintings at the People’s Art Exhibition on Stephen’s Green, Dublin. I won’t list all the items this time but paintings, packaging, tools, tea, stool, and everything needed to show the paintings on the railings, were all transported from my studio in Lucan the 15km (9.5 miles) or so to the city [...]

Dun Laoghaire Pier and Howth Head

Dun Laoghaire Pier and Howth

canvas, unframed

I like shapes, and the profile of Howth Head along with the boats of Dun Laoghaire harbour are a favourite collection at any time of day. In this painting it’s clearly a sunny time of day, as the roaring red sky would indicate.

Painting: Cottage From Sheep Field

Cottage From Sheep Field
14″ x 10″
canvas, unframed
€149 +S&H: €11 Worldwide
A cottage, somewhere rural in Ireland. You’ve seen others I’ve painted, and you’ll see more. This one is THAT cottage, the one I lived in briefly when I thought I was becoming an artist alone in the country, give or take a dog and a bicycle. [...]

Painting: Liffey Bridges

Liffey Bridges
14″ x 11″
canvas, painted sides, unframed
Buy this painting on a card or print - the original is sold.
I like a glut of bridges, and because the Liffey bends its way through Dublin’s city centre there are several points to enjoy such views. This particular one is from the south quays looking east to the [...]

Painting: Frank Sherwin Bridge, Dublin

Frank Sherwin Bridge
16″ x 12″
canvas, unframed
Although Frank Sherwin Bridge does hide many views of Sean Heuston Bridge, it does at least afford newer close-up views of its older cousin. Most times when I’m crossing one I then immediately cross the other. This is only problematic if I actually want to get to the other side [...]

Painting: Loopline Bridge, Dublin

Loopline Bridge
16″ x 12″
canvas, unframed
€165 €125* SOLD
S&H: €11 Worldwide
Some of us never got to appreciate the views of the Custom House unobstructed by the Loopline Bridge, because we’re not 120 years old, so maybe we don’t feel as strongly against it as we should. I like railway bridges and without the advertising hoardings I think [...]
