Nature in all it's glory, the pure wonder. I paint from dreamy ideas and my photography studies but also with a little imagination, painting pictures from photos that have a wee surprise in the capture, naturally caught characters, some with meaning and some for fun. For a demo here is a photo I captured in West Cork, displaying the wind being blown by..... This was the seed for painting Father Sky on the right...
The land, using my own photo studies, alongside the stories long gone by but not forgotten which each carries a lesson or message for the generations of today and to come. To display the Magic, Mystery & Celtic Mythology with sometimes a little imagination thrown in! Can't let the fairies and leprechauns have all the fun ;)
World Joys, Depths and Divisions.This is a theme I began in my late teenage years but slightly swirled away from but have returned back to over time.Here I paint the yin and yang to life, the forestry in its beauty and in its death, its poisoning!!The connections but also the disconnections. Painting Art to stir the heart and maybe people to emotion or action.Again the light and the dark co-existing alongside each other, one unrecognising the other but both two sides of the same coin. At times a concentration on the individual in a crowd, where is the vibrancy and power of one, to the mass of many that seems to consume.
