My review of my sales of 2018. It’s really important to take stock, and celebrate the success you have achieved and thank all the supporters and collectors who have helped you over the year. Thank you.
My low cost solutions for good quality artificial light for artists.
I have had an ambivalent relationship with painting clouds. My approach to painting clouds has been transformed by looking at and painting Irish skies.
For the next month I am selling a selection of Christmas cards based on my paintings direct from my website.
Painting of the coast of Owey Island, Donegal. Owey lies just a short distance off Cruit Island near Kincasslagh in west County Donegal.
There is a frequent ferry service from Burtonport and this old cottage was spotted nestling into the rocks of one of many islands, Inishcoo, I think, en route to Arranmore.
Yesterday was Clyne Farm’s first Christmas Market and we were blessed with sparkling crisp sunshine. It was very popular.
The sparkling autumn light is stunning. From a painter’s point of view is more interesting than summer light. I find it ironic that there’s less light around but its better quality, from an artists’ point of view. I still have not adjusted to the clocks going back last month, and I am still waking at 5 -5.30am!
It is no secret that I love animals. I come from a family of animal lovers.So its no surprise that I often choose dogs (and their owners) as subjects for my art.
