Painting of Irish landscape

Cottage in Roshin Acres, Ireland

I painted this small painting over a number of days, over Christmas. I would usually paint a picture like this in one day but the light kept going and I wasn’t very energetic so I decided not to rush it and wait until the next day. I think my patience was well-rewarded. 

I have painted this house before, in a much larger painting. It’s interesting how the more distant view produces a cooler more airy painting. 

Blog about gorse fires

All hands to the Pumps

A blog about the rescent gorse fires in West Donegal. The rise in the number of gorse fires may have more to do changes in farming practices than climate change. Yet one solution to the gorse fires could actually help with climate change.

Donegal

Donegal is at the north-western corner of the Republic of Ireland. Facing out towards everything the Atlantic has to through at it. It is very big, very beautiful and very empty.
