Snow Clouds - WINTER scene
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different... Silently, like thoughts that come and go, the snowflakes fall, each one a gem...
This oil painting captures a Winter landscape. The scene is of snow clouds over a white landscape with a house in the distance.
The Burren, Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland
I love the landscape of the Burren...
This is a dramatic painting of the limestone landscape of the Burren, County Clare, on the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. In the distance stands a solitary Ash tree beneath a cloudy sky.
The Ash is one of the few types of trees that grows in this landscape. The ash tree is symbolic of strength, power, protection, hope, mystic power, and it can also relate to spirituality and things that happen in the physical realm. Celtic mythology refers to the ash tree as The World Tree, a tree that spans between worlds. It is the tree that represents The Tree of Life.
The Burren name comes from the Irish: Boireann, meaning "great rock."
My painting 'Autumnal' is featured in the new collection Color Story: The Harvest Palette...
'Deep reds, caramel golds, and warm orange hues—the colors of the harvest are at once earthy and bold. Adorn your space with a new abstract, figurative work, or landscape inspired by fall’s finest colors.'
This collection is curated by Bethany Fincher Assistant Curator at Saatchi...

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life. I love painting butterflies...

Sunny Day, Achill Island, Ireland
I love the West coast of Ireland...
This is an evocative oil painting of Achill Island, at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, on the west coast of Ireland. The Island is one of the most ruggedly beautiful and scenic areas in the country.
The painting captures a bright sunny day at a wonderful sandy beach on Achill, with the dramatic backdrop of the Slievemore, which literally translates as ‘Big Mountain'.
It is easy to see why the Island has captured the imagination of so many over the years...
