A while back I came across a quote on the internet that has stuck in my mind:- “If I knew the world was to end tomorrow, I would still plant an apple tree today.” I was quite struck by this sentiment, especially in the light of current events.…
Here I discuss the composition of a study and larger painting of an Irish Landscape painting of Arranmore Isand, Donegal.
A very short history of railways in Donegal and a series of paintings inspired by the beautiful Burtonport Old Railway Walk.

Family History of the Colls and the History of Gweedore in West Donegal.
Blog about my painting of a Donegal beach. As soon as I saw this place I knew I wanted to paint it. The granite rocks, or rather boulders, were scattered along the beach and in the sea. They were a beautiful pinkish colour close up.
A blog about Donegal islands, focusing on Owey, Cruit and Gola. Paintings of Donegal landscapes. Painting of Gola, Gweedore.

This blog is about my recent trip to Donegal in the North of Ireland. The country has changed a lot since I first visited it in the early 1990s. The impression you get driving across the South-Western countries and the Midlands is of a, modern, confident, prosperous and growing country.
I will be in Ireland for the rest of the month. Please be aware that any artwork purchased after 25th March will only be shipped after 12th April.
