About

High up in the mountains, it is so quiet. The bog grasses stretch out across the blanket bog. Beneath the grasses, the earth glows orange and red, as if sighing. We look up and the blue-violet mountains stand out, silhouetted against the night sky. At the summit, a warm golden light borders, lace-like, the rolling clouds. They too seem to breathe and share their life force. Out of view, the moon illuminates the land and tinges the clouds blue-green. When we awake from a dream, the fragments we remember are often disjointed, without an obvious common thread. When this painting came to life, it felt like a dreamscape. And yet, without really making sense, it felt right. This 23 x 23 X 1..25 oil on deep edged panel is ready to hang. The edges, painted white, are 1.25" deep so framing is not required. All my paintings are varnished to add a protective coat against dust. Only the highest quality archival fine art grade oil paints are used on the surface gessoed and prepared by myself. Packing: all work is packed professionally using protective compressed foam boards 2 cm deep so that your painting arrives safely. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. A statement on why I make Art. How can I make tangible on a paint surface a world that is full of magic and poetry? My finished pieces do not mirror a subject matter but are a representation of emotions felt in a specific time or place. Often the fleeting effect of a particular light and colour in nature are held somewhere in my visual memory. At some point, this takes centre stage on the painting I am working on. It may appear during the process of creation without an obvious connection to the subject matter at hand and yet, it adds another dimension, a particular atmosphere. These processes are ways and means by which I express my connection to nature in all its richness and variety. I moved from Ireland to France to create a new body of work with the regular discipline of painting small oil studies on panel. These inform larger landscapes, still lifes and abstract works. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art (BFA). My work is in collections in France, the USA, Great Britain and Ireland. :: Painting :: Impressionist :: This piece comes with an official certificate of authenticity signed by the artist :: Ready to Hang: Yes :: Signed: Yes :: Signature Location: Front bottom right and back of panel :: Wood Panel :: Diagonal :: Original :: Framed: No
