The Gearagh facing east

Another view of the Gearagh, this time facing east as the sun goes down,

Sunset in the Gearagh as the water begins to freeze


oil on canvas 46 x 36 cm

This is a painting of an area called the Gearagh in Co.Cork
 a flooded plain on the road to Inchigeelagh. When I was there
I could see the water beginning to freeze as the last light played across
the lake. Great inspiration for a painting but so very cold.


Thanks for looking :)

Exhibiting at the Lewis Glucksman


I recently entered an art competition with Voluntary Arts Ireland called put your best pencil forward and was lucky enough to have two of my drawings selected for exhibition at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery. The exhibition opened yesterday and will run for a week until the 18th of December after which  it moves on to Derry. Here's a picture of me with my daughter Rachel standing with Fiona Kearny, Director of the Glucksman and Robin Simpson, CEO of Voluntary Arts.. and yes that's me in the hat. Long time readers of the blog will already have seen the drawings entered, both were done at meetings of the Cork sketch Group at the Franciscan well.



If you are in the vicinity of the gallery do feel free to drop in and have a look at the amazing entries of all works displayed by all the artists at this exhibition.

Thanks for looking :)
