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..

Solace

Some of my new paintings. These are 3 paintings I recently finished. There a lot more to come and I am very excited about this new work. The change in environment has indeed seeped into this new work. County Wicklow has so many beautiful places and there are hidden pieces of detail that take my interest all around here. I am so inspired by the landscape here. From the wide open landscape of the mountains to the sheltered interior of the forestry. I have found solace.
