50 x 50 cm / 20 " x 20" oil on canvas
The moss in this painting came from our roof, very kindly picked out of the gutters by the noisy Jackdaws at 6 in the morning and deposited around the house!! It was lovely and green and soft so I thought just the thing to incorporate in a Still Life painting. The eggs came from our local organic gardens, overseen by retired nuns, who also keep an interesting assortment of chickens, hence the array of colours. A couple of spotty Quail eggs some English Lavender from our garden and some leaves from a neighbours shrubs complete the picture.

6" x 8" / 15 x 20 cm, oil on panel framed
As Ireland doesn't grow any peaches or nectarines, all those fruit that need warmer climes, we normally get very hard and unripe fruit with not much flavour, not to mention expensive. These were a lovely surprise as they were very juicy sweet and aromatic and to honour this loveliness I chose to paint it before devouring it!

9" x 10 1/2" / 23 x 26.6 cm oil on panel framed and ready to hang
There are so many derelict rural buildings dotting the countryside here, that I don't have to go far to find subjects to paint! This one has an old corrugated roof which adds colour to the scene.
