Photo Collage: Dublin - Back Lane Doors II

Growing up in Dublin West I’ve walked, played, and learned to ride a bicycle, against the backdrop of garage doors in back lanes.
Sometimes I walk Dublin’s lanes just to look at the doors, with their graffiti, rust, and peeling wood. Here’s a collage of 50 photos (to go with earlier collage of 40 doors). [...]

Photo: Patio Snow

Like everybody else I have photos of Ireland’s big 2010 snow right now, though probably none as popular as Dog-Dog in a field of snow.
While I work on putting the final touches on dozens of paintings for my end-of-year online sale (starting Monday Dec 6th - come back) here’s a photo of why I [...]

Photo: Walking Women

A photo I took a couple of days ago on a rather hazy day in Dublin. It’s of women. Walking. Which reminds me I’m about to start a series of paintings of women walking. Or in conversation,

Yes that’s the east pier in Dun Laoghaire. And there’s more where that came from.

Peoples Art, Dublin September 2010

I’ll be exhibiting some new paintings on Stephen’s Green, on September 24-26, 2010, in the last of the 3 People’s Art exhibitions that are held every summer in Dublin.
The People’s Art exhibition is held on the railings of 3 sides of Stephen’s Green (where the Luas is, the west side, is not used).
This time [...]

Painting: Liberty Hall and O’Connell Bridge

Liberty Hall & O’Connell Bridge
16″ x 12″
canvas, unframed
Buy this painting on a card or print - the original is sold.
Standing at the wall of the river Liffey on Dublin’s Aston Quay I love looking at Liberty Hall in its party hat, and at the junction, which I’ve drawn and painted several times, of the bridge [...]

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
20″ x 8″
canvas, unframed
€165 S&H: €11 Worldwide
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: 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 [...]
