1822 Alone

11" x 14" oil on panel, to be framed

Alone in a field, I saw him passing by in our car on the way to the framers, we stopped and he came trotting over so I could take his photo, I must remember to put a bag of apples in the car for next time.

1813 At Rest

12" x 9" oil on panel, framed, Available

First of my paintings for the Dungarven Group Summer Show at the Dungarvan Arts Centre.
My hubby and I took a trip down to Waterford and the Dungarvan area to get some ref pics of the area. Dungarvan is on the south coast of Ireland on an estuary, and of course very picturesque, we chose a perfect sunny day and  I got lots of great photos. I will probably paint around 8 paintings for inclusion.

1815 Working Boy

10" x 12" /25.4 x 30.5cm oil on panel, framed, available

Starting to paint a few horses for the upcoming horse show in Dublin. This lovely equine example lives at a farm near to where we lived in Mountmellick.
I forgot to photograph him after I had finished painting and he got framed, taking a pic when a painting is framed is not ideal.

1810 Pitcher Perfect

30 x 60cm oil on canvas,available when framed

A similar set up to a previous painting so that they are a pair.

1811 No Coffee

50 x 40cm oil on canvas available when framed

A simple set up so I thought that it would be a relatively easy one to paint, but of course each painting has it's own difficulties, like getting lost in the folds of the material, finding the right mixes for the shadow colours.and composition etc.

1809 Painted by Nature

8" x 10" / 20 x 25cm oil on canvas board, available

My hubby bough at the local market, along with some duck eggs, these beautiful quail's eggs. I had never seen any in real life before and they really looked as if somebody had painted each egg. Because they are so small it was difficult to find items that didn't dwarf them in my set up.

1808 Evening Light

10 1/2" x 8 1/2" oil on canvas to be framed

Out for an evening stroll we passed by a small paddock with ponies and one donkey, I had been wanting to paint a donkey for a while, so when he came up to the wire fence I took the opportunity to take a snap of his handsome face, I just wished that I had, had an apple to reward him with.

1804 'Jugged'

8"x 6"/ 20 x 15cm oil on panel,framed

I bought a box full of jugs/pitchers at auction quite awhile back and am gradually including them in my still lifes, always trying to think up new combinations and set ups this one is fairly straight forward, I like to keep it simple in these small formats.

 I need to paint some really large ones too and have a plan of how many I need of each for my upcoming exhibitions, I try not to freak myself out with the amount of work I have to accomplish, just take it one step at a time!
