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: From Grattan Bridge

From Grattan Bridge
16″ x 12″
Grattan Bridge I’ve painted from several angles and I’m not sure which is my favourite view, but I do like the hippocamp lamps. Growing up I assumed the view east along the river would never change. That was before the IFSC, the Millenium Bridge, the Boardwalk, and George’s Quay Plaza.

Photo: Geese Over Dublin West

This photo of a large flock of Geese flying over Dublin West I took last week while out with the dog. I’m weak on Geese but I think they’re Barnacle Geese. They caught my eye flying from over Chapelizod to Ballyfermot but then did a 180 degree turn.

Painting: To The Beach

Here’s the 2nd of 2 paintings finished recently that went to Moscow.
To The Beach
40.5 x 30.5 cm (16 x 12 inches)

Painting: Coast, The West

Coast, The West
23 x 18 cm (9 x 7 inches)

Sometimes with landscapes I start with somewhere in particular in mind, and then I take liberties which I hope results in a painting of my experience there. This is one of those times.
Coast, The West was [...]

Photo: Phoenix Park Tunnel

A photo of where the rail tunnel from Heuston to Connolly goes under the Phoenix Park. As you can see I was waiting for cyclists to fill that space.
This is down by Islandbridge, on what was once upon a time the main road from Dublin to Galway.

Photo: One Tree

A photo of a small tree, somewhere in Ireland. It’s not possible to talk about single trees without sounding corny, so that’s all I have for you.

Photo: Blue and White

Here’s a photo I think would make a good poster, albeit just with a target customer base of 1. No cropping was done, and I spent ages trying to decide if I wanted skin in there. It’s not easy sneaking up behind people. (enlarge)
That thin strip of blue below the freaky Irish sky is the [...]
