1961 Bluebell Spring


35 x 45 cm / 14" x 18" oil on panel, available when dry and framed!

These lovely bluebells were blooming in part of our local Forest Park which surrounds Lough Derg. They bloom among a beech grove hidden off the beaten track, so you can only find them if you know where to look.

1959 If You Go Down to the Woods Today


35 x 45 cm / 14" x 18" oil on panel

This is a scene from our local forest park, it surrounds Lough Derg (Co. Galway) and is a great place on our doorstep, to enjoy nature. We have had some lovely weather this past few weeks, though it has turned rainy now, so my family and I went to see the bluebells that cover another part of the woods. I took loads of photos of the carpet of blue, although this scene  is without bluebells, I was attracted to it because of the shadows crossing my path. I will be painting a scene next which will feature those blue lovelies!

1958 Potted Strawberries (available)


6" x 8" / 20 x 25 cm oil on panel framed

It is strawberry time again, although it is possible to buy these lovelies all year around, there is nothing like eating fresh fruit in their right season. These didn't make it out of my painting room or the rest in the punnet either!

1956 Burning Bright


10" x 8" / 25 x 20 cm oil on panel, framed

This is one of those paintings I nearly gave up on, I left it for a couple of days and came back to it when I was in a better frame of mind and had more patience.
