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 www.theartofphildavis.com 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.
