New Painting

west end ballyc300-001 (2)
“West End , Ballycotton Village”
Just finished this painting from a picture I took several years ago. Sadly since I started the painting the restaurant has closed and the house at the end badly damaged by fire, but thankfully nobody injured. I agonised over whether to finish the painting but when all said and done it is showing a piece of Ballycotton history.
Framed prints of this painting are available from the prints page on this blog or my website or call in to me in my studio Downstairs in Shanagarry, Shanagarry Design Centre, Shanagarry Co Cork.
I was fortunate to sell this painting yesterday. It was painted from photographs I took in Buenos Aires in 2010. I dont know if the guy was homeless or a dog minder but he was in the same park every morning with about 9 dogs including a Doberman and a Rotweiler, so I took my pics from the other side of the fence.

Roches Point


OIL on CANVAS. 36"X 12" . €350.00

I have been working on this painting on and off for a couple of years, thinking that it was finished on at least two occasions, but then deciding otherwise and reworking it, in the end , completely. I am finally, reasonably happy with it, but not entirely, so I hope somebody buys it quickly so I’m not tempted to take a brush to it again.

Sold Today


I’m delighted to say that this painting has gone to a good home today. It doesn’t matter how many paintings I have sold over the years I still get the same thrill that someone will actually give me money for something I have painted.
