Art Swop

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!..

Thank you Michael!

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 I don’t think I’ll ever go back.

The act of making a painting is about freedom and expression. My memory of light, colour, form, and aspects of the landscape that stays in my subconscious are what’s important with the will to let go and let it happen without thought or consequence. .

A short video of my recent experience in my studio. I am feeling very much alive with this new work I am making..
