Painting Giveaway #7: Name That Painting

Identify this painting. The 1st person to leave a comment telling me what this pictured painting in progress became wins an original painting of their choice from the prizepool.

The prizepool was extended today up to 20 paintings after I added in several paintings that are in the current sale of paintings. They are still for sale, like all paintings in the prizepool so it’s possible you could have a choice of less than 20 when the competition closes.

Painting in progress, but which painting?

Bear in mind that the last time I ran a guess the painting in progress competition like this, just one person got it right. The finished painting is somewhere on my page of paintings on IrishKC.

I’ll probably leave your answers hidden in moderation because not only does it add great excitement but I have to see a dog about a dog, and I have to go to the pictures (Mesrine Part 2). I’ll tell you tonight or tomorrow who won, depending on answers or I’ll keep it open if nobody has won.

  8. Laura gabrielse says:

    Rosmuc Aris

  9. Lozzie says:

    This is a fantastic idea, by the way.

    I’m guessing “Nephin.”

    Have you ever painted Kildare?

  10. keith nolan says:


    I originally read that as ’suggest a name for the painting’! “More coffee for Table 1″

  11. John Keyes says:

    I’m probably waaay too late but it’s the Dolmen isn’t it?

  12. keith nolan says:

    Kenmare White

    one last attempt…

  13. Easy - the Burren Dolmen!

  14. Mark says:

    I’m going to guess that its the Burren Dolmen painting.

  15. Elaine says:

    Is it Nephin?

  16. martha says:

    “Sheep; Stone Wall”?

  17. american eejit says:

    It’s the Burren Dolmens!

  18. Ian Healy says:

    Stone Cottage? Cliffs Of Moher 2? Consciencious Objector? Elevator Island?

  19. What fun!

    I think it looks like Spongebob Squarepants… that’s not going to be right but you gotta call em as you see em, right? :)

  21. elly parker says:

    Nephin, but it’s really hard!

  22. Christine Cullen says:

    Burren Dolmen. I’m probably not the first answer (I didn’t look at prior responses) but that’s all right. I enjoy looking at you paintings and one day soon, I shall have one of my own… Thank you!

  23. Patricia deVarennes-twitter PtDev says:

    Burren Dolmen

  24. [...] I asked you to identify a painting of mine from an an earlier picture of it in progress. For comparison here’s the finished painting beside the picture of it in progress that I showed you. [...]

  25. E gan F says:

    The answer and winner is now posted. Thanks everyone for playing along, and for retweeting and passing word along. I’ll do another one soon.

  26. Elaine says:

    Damn. Seems so obvious when you put them side by side. I also think Burren Dolmen is the only painting I didn’t click on the site. :)

  27. Laura Gabrielse says:

    It’s certain I’ll never win a contest that requires an artistic brain. Ask me something logical, where I have a hope of getting the right answer! :)

  28. E gan F says:

    Thanks for all the compliments in there.

    Lozzie, Kildare? Surely I must have, I know the county so well, 2nd only to how well I know Dublin. I can’t think of one to point you at, but let me think some more on that.

    Laura, Giveaways 1, 2, 3 and 5 were all logical quaetions. Well they weren’t artistic anyway. I think the next one I’m going to do - if I stick with the question in mind - is going to be a mixture of logic and art, but mostly logic. Might run it next week…
