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: 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.

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 [...]

Card: Stripey Donkey

The boxes and sketchbooks in my studio are littered with unfinished cards I’ve been making since I stopped buying them about 25 yrs ago. Although I try to not think of them as paintings, so that I can produce them much quicker than paintings, I find once the brush/knife/pen hits the paper everything slows down.
Every [...]

Painting: Coast, The West

Here’s a new painting finished a few days ago.
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 [...]
