New work 080715

Something new from yesterday. I will be updating my ‘current work’ area with some new paintings shortly. This piece here is oil and mixed media on stretched paper. Approx 35cm x 50cm 

  

Today  : : 180515

 Today’s location of inspiration. Taken on my iPhone, here a few clips of what excites me today. They will most likely become part of some of my next pieces. The atmosphere was stark and warm and the only sounds were of nature itself. 

   
  

Work In Progress # ‘stop point’ 

This is a work in progress.. I never know where a painting will go when I begin and sometimes I wonder more for the finished ones.. It’s hard to put a ‘stop point’ on a work at times. I think it’s more organic than that.. It’s interesting how the dialogue changes through creating a visual narrative and how the dialogue actually ends when the painting is somewhat finished. To me I think the mystery of art lays somewhere inbetween.  

 

Footbridge :: new painting 

A new little piece finished today. I think It should be titled ‘footbridge’ … Inspired by a trek in the Wicklow mountains at the back of the Djouce woods where the top of powerscourt waterfall begins. There was a footbridge.. it brought thoughts to mind.. Finding my feet and introducing myself to a new surrounding. I felt welcome. And I felt at home.
