1987 Swan Lake

40 x 50 oil on canvas, available

A change from still lifes ! Our town in Galway borders on Lake Derg, the River Shannon flows through it and  is bordered by forest, a lovely place to visit, full of wild life, flora and fauna.

1985 Surrounded SOLD

30 x 60 cm / 12" x 24" oil on canvas

This is my latest favourite painting! loved painting it too, but photographing it was another matter altogether! Photographing dark backgrounds is so problematic as the light reflects off the surface and makes it look gray and washed out, so after taking dozens of pics and with a lot of editing I've got a fairly accurate photo.

1984 Forest Finds

30 x 40 cm oil on canvas

Finds that my daughter brought back from an Island in our local Lough Derg. Eagles had nested there and the feather is probably one of theirs. The skull we think is from a Cormorant and the shell a water snail. An unusual subject matter for me, but made an interesting change from fruit!

1983 Wintry Frost

21 x 30 cm acrylics on canvas panel.

A palette knife painting in acrylics.  A scene I often pass by on my occasional morning walk. The field was thick with frost on that day, the cattle that normally grazes there were probably safe and warm in a nearby barn.

1982 Vintage Tureen SOLD

50 x 70 cm = 20" x 28" oil on canvas,

 I haven't painted a still life this large before and it was quite daunting and a very time consuming feat, I'm hoping to find a large dark ornate moulding for the frame to make it look quite grand.
