Trying to fix a painting.. inspired by thoughts and visual awareness from my hike today..well yesterday now.. terrains, tree felling, January sunset, tree stumps, wild winds over Lough Tay and spying on sparrow hawk trying to fly against the winds.. .
My first art swop with fellow artist Michael Gemmell.. and Limerick School of Art and Design graduate.. I am truly honored to swop with such a talented artist who was tutored by John Shinnors and both of whom I’ve admired since discovering their work during my early years as an artist. I am completely inspired with this abstraction titled ‘The Burren in Autumn’ Oil on Canvas, 40x50cm
Swooped with my ‘Unfolding Autumn’ Oil and mixed media on canvas, 30x30cm
Now I am going to paint something new just to mark the moment.. More artists should be doing this.. it’s a phenomenal experience!..
Two of my most recent paintings titled, ‘Tall Trees’ and ‘Campfire’, will be exhibited next week at Signal Arts Centre 16th Annual Members Exhibition, 1 Albert Avenue, Bray Co. Wicklow. The show runs from May 23rd to June 5th 2016, with the opening May 29th 3pm to 5pm. All are welcome!
