Peek a Boo


Oil on Canvas Board
7"x5"

Using up oil paint left over from classes , it made a nice change from the ink pigment I have been using lately. I had a small painting on a canvas board that I had discarded, unfinished, so decided to use the board.
I have painted so many derelict cottages lately I thought a derelict car would be a nice change, still the same theme though.

Derelict farmyard

Ink pigment and acrylic paint on acrylic paper.
11.5" x 8"

Really on a roll with these ink pigments although I have used small amounts of acrylic paint on this one. Another derelict farmyard that I would love to own, but wouldn't have the energy to renovate. Looking for a name for the painting....any suggestions?

Ink pigment on watercolour paper.
Image size 12"x 8"
Framed size 16"x 12"
I found this beautiful old wooden house in the middle of the forest on a birdwatching trip to Poland a few years ago. It seemed abandoned but had a satellite dish, so maybe it was lived in.Would have loved to own it , in such an idyllic spot.

Derelict Cottages, Gap of Dunloe.
Ink pigment on watercolour paper. Framed size 18”x14”
For Sale €200.00





Couldn’t resist trying this one. These derelict cottages must have been photographed by just about everyone who visited the Gap, including me. Not sure what it is about dereliction that attracts me, maybe it’s the history of the place, who lived there, how many generations started their life there? Must have been a tough life.
