White World

Moving on with this current work in progress and this newly begun small little painting, I hope for the colour to return soon in this white snowy February we are having right now..



Wet Boots’ 20x20cm

Oil and beeswax on canvas

This painting although previously thought finished, had been sticking out from the rest here in my studio the past few months looking to rework its ending.. So today I gave in.. there is a fear in reworking an old painting but it’s a fear that drives me sometimes also..I hope I made the right decision.. I’ll know in a few months maybe..

This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..

Questions, Questions..

When I feel I am nearing the conclusion of a painting, I gather a lot of mixed thoughts and feelings about how it should finish.. it’s the worst and best feeling..

I am limboed with the contemplation of a work in progress..there is a fine line between absolute euphoria and complete failure..

you need a good sense of humour at times..

Before The Fall

August.. The most violet of months out in the open landscape of Ireland. Mountains covered in heather of all shades of violets. It is a magical place to walk, up there in the mountains around this time of year. Those reddened violets and purples, all about to wither into golden browns and yellows and soon to be gone until next year, when the cycle begins again..
