Nature in all it's glory, the pure wonder. I paint from 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.....(The painting 'Father Sky' is in progess, I will add here when complete)
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 & mythology and sometimes a little imagination thrown in! Can't let the fairies and leprechauns have all the fun ;)
This is a theme I began in my late teenage years but slightly swirled away from but have returned back to. Concentrating on the individual in a crowd, where is the vibrancy of one, to the mass of many that seems to consume. Again the light and the dark co existing alongside each other, one unrecognising the other but both two sides of the same coin. The Dancers vs The Mourners, Sickness vs Health, Wealth vs Poverty and so on.
