Studio Session #20/08

Here is today’s studio session where I am continuing one of a number of works on the go at the moment. This painting is because of Comet Neowise.. Sometimes I just get the urge to mark cosmic events however little or large its significance.

Watching the Stars Watching You

A small part of how this painting came about.

In the Studio

This is a small snip of today’s recording of a current work in progress. It is a diptych in 100 x 100 cm (or both at 50cm x 100cm) that I am working on. They can live either together or apart I am hoping, at the finished stage. I forget to hit record sometimes betweenContinue reading “In the Studio”

The Rings Of Saturn

I am working on this new painting at the moment and here is a small part of the detail in close up. In its early stages it had been leaning toward a title that came to mind – The Rings Of Saturn.. and more from a sound and movement perspective. For a part of theContinue reading “The Rings Of Saturn”

Expression In Colour and Abstraction

Going in and not thinking too deeply as I had been with me last series of paintings. I feel an immense sense of freedom, something I’ve been striving for before. I think too much there fore I tried to control too much. Now I am releasing all that energy into my new work and IContinue reading “Expression In Colour and Abstraction”

Pushing Abstraction

Today

Nothing but the sound of birds and the soft humid breeze here today. This was the top of one of the Wicklow mountains. Maulin, just above Crone woods. My eyes stretched so so far in all angles. I am working on a few pieces at the moment and this trip from the bottom where IContinue reading “Today”

Before the Water Falls

Some thoughts for my next work.  I stood at the brow of the waterfall over powerscourt that day, looking at Djouce Woods and taking it in within its own environment.  That was the ground down there that I picked up most of the pine needles which are incorporated into my recent paintings. With the SugarContinue reading “Before the Water Falls”
