Washing Line, Arranmore


An acrylic painting on linen canvas.



View from Arranmore Island, Donegal, across the sea towards Gweedore on the mainland. The rocky islands of West Donegal  and Errigal can be seen in the distance. Washing dries on a line hung from the ruins of an outhouse and a old cottage. I love the movement of drying clothes on a line and I return to this subject again and again. Here the white sheet contrasts with the dark stone buildings. It reminds of the refreshing Donegal breeze. I also like the juxtaposition of the old buildings with the new,  the low wall bisecting the painting on the right hand side, and the shadow of a house.  This is island life, old works along side the new.
