Donegal Blues

Paints represent a sort of non-verbal language for me. I actually find it hard to put into words how I feel about paints. I have a “feeling” in my stomach and I want to wave my hands about a bit to express those feelings. I don’t know if other artists are like this. I see colours in life and think of the paints I might use to represent them on the canvas. This blog is about a particular shade of blue.

Painting of Donegal, Ireland

From Fall Island

Along the diverse coast of The Rosses there are many small island very close to shore. One of them is Fall Island, which can be reached by foot when the tide is low. There is only one single house on the 300 metres long island.

Round the Rosses

The Rosses is a region in the west of County Donegal, Ireland. The name comes from “Ros”, the Irish word for headland. It’s a barren but beautiful landscape, studded with a myriad of lakes and inlets of the sea.

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.
