'Dune Grass'

Paint Out with SEPA in Curracloe Beach, Co. Wexford. Beautiful spot, fabulous sand and of course great weather in the sunny South East! Fooled around with a few paintings but ended up back with a pen in my hand, like how it turned out too.

'Bob away'

Done on the Paint Out in 'The Safe', Rosslare Harbour. A fantastic day with beautiful weather, great advice and company. Thanks to all in SEPA for a truly great event.

'Street View'

"Street View" [Sold]

Second day of the Art in the Open festival in Wexford town. Set myself up and struggled with the straight lines as per usual, but it was all worth it and had a serious celebration that night after selling it in the Exhibition. Loved the viewpoint and the juxtaposition of the different buildings down the little street, hope to do another painting of it in my black and white sometime soon!

'Between Showers'

"Between Showers" [Sold]

Done on my first day at the Art in the Open festival in Wexford. Got absolutley drowned wet, dried off and sat back at my easel to finish it off! Really enjoyed the day!

For Dad

It's my Dad's birthday next weekend and he's off to climb the Matterhorn, again. Always so nervous when he's away on these trips, but it's his thing. The solitude of climbing along the ridge of a mountain I can only imagine. Though going by the way his eyes light up as he tells us of his trips, that solitude sounds incredible.

Painted using acrylics and goache on acrylic paper.

Phoenix Park 11th April

Done with red oil pastel and gimpy markers! Very annoying to work with, turns out marker can't go over oil pastel and it's very messy!!
